Whole Wheat Honey and Goat Cheese Biscuits

by aimee @ shugarysweets on February 21, 2012

Remember last week when I shared these brownies with you? Today, I have another recipe from Joy the Baker’s cookbook. This cookbook is a treasure trove of fabulous recipes and mouthwatering pictures!

I baked up these whole wheat biscuits on Sunday morning. The creamy goat cheese gives a slight hint of savory, but the honey makes you think you are eating a sweet biscuit. I drizzled maple syrup over these warm biscuits and really enjoyed the flavor!

Next week I get to choose the recipe to share with all of you…so many wonderful choices…I can’t decide!!!

Yay for goat cheese in a biscuit! I love the maple syrup – I could have used more sweetness, so that would be a great treat!
