Sweet & Delicious Honey and Biscuits Gift Basket Idea #HoneyForHolidays #DonVictor #shop #delicious #honey #giftbasket

I’m so Southern I drawl when I dream, so a honey and biscuits gift basket is a perfect match for this Southern girl.  I think a gift basket should reflect the individual giving it as well as being a good match for the person receiving it.   This is a great gift for anyone, I think.  I mean, honey….how can you ever go wrong?

To create this gift basket I assembled some holiday themed kitchen items that I picked up at WalMart.  I poured the dry ingredients of a homemade biscuit mix into a clear bag and wrote the recipe on the back of the tag.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter very cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 450°F.
  • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor.
  • Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles course meal.
  • If using a food processor, just pulse a few times until this consistency is achieved.
  • Add the buttermilk and mix JUST until combined.
  • If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured board.
  • Gently, gently PAT (do NOT roll with a rolling pin) the dough out until it's about 1/2" thick. Fold the dough about 5 times, gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick.
  • Use a round cutter to cut into rounds.
  • You can gently knead the scraps together and make a few more, but they will not be anywhere near as good as the first ones.
  • Place the biscuits on a cookie sheet- if you like soft sides, put them touching each other.
  • If you like"crusty" sides, put them about 1 inch apart- these will not rise as high as the biscuits put close together.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes- the biscuits will be a beautiful light golden brown on top and bottom.

  • DIRECTIONS
  • Do not overbake.
  • Note: The key to real biscuits is not in the ingredients, but in the handling of the dough.
  • The dough must be handled as little as possible or you will have tough biscuits.
  • I have found that a food processor produces superior biscuits, because the ingredients stay colder and there's less chance of overmixing.
  • You also must pat the dough out with your hands, lightly.
  • Rolling with a rolling pin is a guaranteed way to overstimulate the gluten, resulting in a tougher biscuit.
  • Note 2: You can make these biscuits, cut them, put them on cookie sheets and freeze them for up to a month.
  • When you want fresh biscuits, simply place them frozen on the cookie sheet and bake at 450°F for about 20 minutes.

I created tags using Scrabble-like letter tiles.  Mine are self adhesive but you can add glue to the regular ones too.  You can also cut tags out of cardboard and cereal boxes.  I purchased a huge box of tags like the one that says “recipe” from an office supply store.  There’s a lot of variety when it comes to kraft tags.

I finally used a chicken wire frame that I bought a year ago.  YAY!  I love the way it’s incorporated into the gift basket.  It’s perfect for holding the biscuits and honey signs!  I cut a piece of red felt for the top of the frame.  The flowers and wooden ampersand came from my crafty stash.  I used Zip Dry to stick the ampersand to the corrugated banner.  I love the way it looks!

When you go to get this delicious Don Victor honey, you’ll find at Walmart within the Hispanic Aisle.  I had no trouble finding it knowing that it was in the Hispanic aisle, so remember that’s where it is!  While I was in Walmart, I picked up the basket, oven mitt, pot holder and spatula for the gift basket.  They also had colored burlap, in the floral department, like the kind I wrapped around my basket.  I had some already in my crafty stash but was really impressed with the options they had!
