Carbs and butter, my favorite things in life. And ice cream (I’m actually here at Sweet Ritual eating the unicorn poop ice cream while typing this post). I grew up eating the honey biscuits from Church’s Chicken. Those were SO good. The chicken was okay, but the biscuits were crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. Austin chefs have elevated the simple biscuit into a heavenly, buttery goodness. So put on your fancy pants, you’ll want to indulge in these buttery, flaky biscuits with whipped butter.
