Lise in Indiana's Note:
In Nashville, Indiana, this restaurant was THE place to eat - delicious home-style meals and these biscuits. We'd carry home brown paper bags full of these and a couple jars of sweet cinnamony apple butter. I know, these are not "good for you", but what real treat is? Prep time includes rise time.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
- 2Stir in other ingredients, and enough flour to form a soft dough.
- 3Knead lightly for 5 or 6 minutes then form into a ball.
- 4Let dough rise till doubled, 40 - 60 minutes.
- 5Punch down dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
- 6Roll out to 1/2" thickness and cut with 1 1/2" biscuit cutter.
- 7Let biscuits rise for 15 - 20 minutes while frying oil/fat heats.
- 8Heat frying oil/fat to just over 350 degrees F.
- 9If fat is too hot, the biscuits will be soggy in the center.
- 10Drop biscuit into the hot fat, a few at a time.
- 11Fry for 1 or 2 minutes till golden on the bottom.
- 12Flip each biscuit over (if it doesn't flip by itself!) and fry until golden brown.
- 13Drain on absorbent paper.
- 14Cut a biscuit open to check for doneness, and adjust frying time if needed.
- 15Serve warm with lots of apple butter, to be authentic.
- 16These freeze well - just reheat wrapped in foil in a warm oven.
