These biscuits are so easy to make and taste really good. They were made by my gramma whenever we would show up on a week-end night to watch tv. When hot out of the oven, she would butter them and fill with one of her home-made jellies or jam. They were a great snack for us kids.
- 1 1⁄4 ounces dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 2 cups flour
- Dissolve yeast in warm water with the sugar salt and oil. Add flour and mix. Let rise 45 minutes, covered. Turn out onto floured board and knead 5 minutes, adding flour as needed.
- Roll out and cut with biscuit cutter.Place on greased baking sheet or in greased iron skillet. Let rest 15-20 minutes. Bake in 350°F oven about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Keep checking as oven temps do vary.
I love this recipe. They taste more like yeast rolls rather than biscuits.
