      Update: I tried an experiment to see if you could freeze these biscuits the way you could freeze regular Angel Biscuits. I made up a batch, but removed 3 biscuits and froze them. I thawed them (covered) on my counter for about 45 minutes, then cooked them in my toaster oven. They were nice on the inside but the crust came out a bit on the crunchy side. Would I freeze them! August 8, 2006 These biscuits were wonderful and got great raves from family that were visiting. I omitted the extra butter as I found that it wasn't needed. I felt that it was a little light on the salt, so I upped it to 1 tsp. As the family was here for 2 weeks, I made these often! I made these up in advance, put them in the fridge until needed... brought them to room temperature, then baked them. My kitchen smelt wonderful! Much appreciated, Donna!!

      First time I've ever used dry yeast WITH starter but what a pleasant surprise. These rose so high and where light and delish - Thanks Donna, the whole family loved them, even my picky DGS's who won't usually try anything. I took advantage of some of the early reviews and followed the store in fridge over night & then pop in the oven in the morning. DH just recently made me a "proofing box" so using that my morning rise time was cut in half. YUM, wish I could give this TEN stars.

      AWESOME Biscuits. Loved the texture with a slightly chewey inside and a nice crisp outside. This was the first time using my other "starter" by KimmieOH Sourdough Starter and it was wonderful. Thank you so much.
