Butter Yeast Biscuits

Print Email

1 package active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110 to 115°F)
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup boiling water

In a cup dissolve the yeast in warm water. Beat together the butter, egg and sugar; add the dissolved yeast and stir. Add the flour, salt and boiling water; mix well. Refrigerate the dough overnight or until well chilled. Roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thickness and use a biscuit cutter to cut into biscuits. Re-roll the scraps and cut again until all the dough is used.

Allow the biscuits to rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
