ingredients

directions

  • Night Before:

  • Mix together the sponge ingredients, stirring well in a nonmetal bowl.
  • Cover with plastic wrap (I place a shower cap over my bowl) and set aside until mix is bubbly, about 12 hours.
  • To Make Biscuits:

  • Melt butter and stir in sugar until well blended.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the sponge and knead the dough for about 10 minutes until elastic or until bounces back when poked.
  • Let rise in a warm spot until double in bulk.
  • Punch down dough, knead lightly a few times to get the remaining gass out.
  • Pat out the dough until 1/2 inch thick and cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter.
  • Place on a well-greased cookie sheet and let rise again until double in bulk.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
