  • Summary

    Cathead biscuits are a Southern staple whose name refers to their large size (about as big as a cat's head). The dough for this hand-rolled biscuit recipe is made by incorporating flour into the wet ingredients, instead of the reverse. The result is a fluffy (rather than flaky) biscuit, ready to be split and spread with flavorful honey butter.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup buttermilk powder
    • 3 tablespoons baking powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • Pinch of sugar
    • 6 tablespoons lard or bacon fat, cut into pieces and slightly softened
    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces and slightly softened, plus more, melted, if desired
    • 3 1/2–4 cups all-purpose flour, divided, plus more
    • 1/2 cup flavorful honey (such as buckwheat)
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
