Angel Biscuits

Well, we have been a little slow at blogging lately. That is not to say we haven't been busy in the kitchen though. So to jump-start again I will try to catch up on some of the things we have made and just need to blog about. The first one is one of my favorite recipes. These rolls are quick and simple, and always bring back fond memories, like the first time B met my family and they decided she was in charge of making them, talk about trial by fire! :) Luckily she passed with flying colors and we love making these rolls any chance we get.

1 Pkg yeast
3/4 C warm water
3 TBS sugar
2 C flour (I like to use half all-purpose flour and half bread flour)
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dissolve the yeast into the warm water and the sugar. Let it sit for a couple of minutes until it becomes bubbly.

Add the salt, oil and flour and mix until it forms a soft dough, kneed 2min until smooth.

Roll out the dough to about 1/4-1/2 inch thickness and use a roll cutter or a round glass to cut into circles.

Place place a small 1tsp sized chunk of butter on each roll and fold over. The butter truly is the key in making these rolls amazing.

Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter and add the rolls. Bake at 375 for 12-18min or until the rolls are golden brown

These rolls are best when the are eaten hot out of the oven. You can serve them with just about anything from gravy to honey, but any way you do it you will not be disappointed!
