Game Of Thrones Food - Honey Biscuits

Today is day one of the A Feast Of Fire And Ice cookbook testing!  Cheers!  The first item on the menu is Honey Biscuits! They have a spicy kick to them and I've found that they go best with hot chocolate or coffee.  But they are delicious and very different then your typical biscuit!

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1/2 cup of honey
1 cup raw sugar for decorating

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. 
In a bowl, combine the flour baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices, granulated sugar, and ginger.  Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.  Heat the honey in a small sauce pan over medium heat until it is warm and runny (or microwave it for a minute). Add the honey to the flour mixture and work with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.

Pour the raw sugar into a bowl.  Roll the dough into 2 inch balls and coat them with raw sugar.  Place eight balls onto each prepared baking sheet, without flattening them; leave room around the sides for spreading.  Bake for 12 to 15 minsor until the tops of the biscuits are just cracked.  Let them stand on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before changing them to a wire rack to cool.

Eat the biscuits right away or store in a container for up to a week.  Enjoy these delicious biscuits with your morning coffee or as an afternoon snack!

These would be a great addition for your Game Of Thrones premiere on Sunday! Your friends won't know what hit them. Tomorrow I will be sampling the white beans and bacon from A Feast Of Fire And Ice Cookbook.  Check back!
