1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cream of tartar in a medium bowl.
Work the shortening into the flour mixture by crumbling with your hands until the mixture feels like cornmeal.
Pour milk into flour mixture and mix well.
On a slightly floured surface, knead the dough about 12-15 times.
Make dough into balls (about 2 inches) and place on baking sheet.
Brush Dough balls with some of the melted butter.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden.
Meanwhile Bring the remainder of the butter, and all of the honey to a boil in a sauce pan, then set the honey butter aside.

Choose what you love, but everything in moderation. Instead of eating biscuits with every meal, try a meal without it. Or, eat your biscuit with vegetables instead of fried chicken and other fried foods. Trust me, your body will thank you.
