Arepas (adapted from Bobby Flay)
Bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan, then remove from heat and stir in butter.
Combine arepa flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the hot milk and honey and stir until combined. Let mixture stand until milk is absorbed enough for a soft dough to form, 1 to 2 minutes (dough will continue to stiffen).
Form the dough into 12 balls (about 2 inches in diameter) and flatten between palms into 3 1/2 to 4-inch patties (about 1/3-inch thick), if the dough is too sticky add more arepa flour.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat until the oil begins to shimmer, fry 4 arepas at a time, until lightly golden brown on both sides and just cooked through about 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a baking sheet lined with paper towels until ready to serve.
