Yum! The combination of the buttermilk for flavor along with the yeast for texture makes really good biscuits. Thanks Charisma!
These were excellent Char! I made them with regular dry yeast, I added the dry mix, the buttermilk and the proofed yeast together, and mixed the dough on my kitchen aid stand mixer for approx. 30 seconds, I shaped it into a large round disk, and refigrerated for half an hour. I was surprised that the dough really did not rise that much even with the added yeast. I baked them on my convection air-bake oven for 22 minutes. These are not your average biscuits, they rise nice and high with a light airy texture, a bit different that the usual biscuit... and bake out with a nice deep golden brown top, they have a very slight taste of yeast, definately not over powering at all. This recipe makes a ton! I got 24 biscuits, but I shaped (did not roll) the dough very thick, as I do not like small biscuits This is a great recipe Char, I will definately make it again. Thanks for posting hon!...Kitten:)
