Did you know you can make yeast raised biscuits? Angel Biscuits are light, fluffy, and so soft! Just perfect with a bowl of soup.
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) instant yeast
- 1/3 cup warm water, heated to about 110 degrees
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup milk
- In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water, and honey. Set aside for 5-10 minutes until the mixture is foamy.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the butter is completely combined.
- Add the milk and yeast mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until combined, then turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 30-60 second until smooth (the dough will still be sticky).
- Pat the dough out into a 6×6 inch square and cut into 9 square biscuits.
- Place the biscuits onto a greased cookie sheet and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes to begin rising.
- Remove the kitchen towel, then place the sheet of biscuits in a cold oven. Set the oven to 400F degrees. When the oven temperature reaches 400F, bake the biscuits for 10 minutes until golden brown.
- Serve the biscuits warm with butter, jam, or honey
