Angel biscuits - country living

Yield: 12 biscuits

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Active dry yeast
¼ cup Warm water (105' to 115'F)
2 tablespoons Sugar
3 cups Unsifted all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
¾ cup Milk

1. In small bowl, sprinkle yeast over water. Stir in sugar and set aside until mixture is foamy-about 10 minutes.

2. In medium-size bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast mixture and milk; mix lightly with fork until well combined.

3. Cover dough with clean cloth and let it rise in a warm place, away from drafts, until double in size-about 30 minutes.

4. Grease large baking sheet. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to Ih-inch thickness. With 3-inch round cutter, cut out 12 biscuits, re-rolling dough if necessary. Place biscuits on greased baking sheet. With tines of fork, pierce biscuits lightly a few times. Let biscuits rise 45 minutes.

5. Heat oven to 375'F. Bake biscuits 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
