My roommate makes the fluffiest biscuits I’ve ever had — airy, light, perfection. She was kind enough to share her recipe…are you ready? You’re going to love these!
Fluffiest of Biscuits
1 Packet of Yeast (about 1/2 TBS)
1 Cup Warm Water
2 TSP Sugar (any kind, my roommate prefers white sugar)
2 TBS Oil
2 Cups Flour (you can use any kind, she prefers all purpose flour)
1 TSP Salt
*Makes 6 large biscuits*
In a bowl, combine the yeast, sugar & warm water by stirring. Mix in the oil, flour & salt. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the dough & begin kneading (don’t use too much flour, you still want the dough to be wet). The dough will be ready when it looks like this:
Cover the bowl & let dough rise for 30 minutes (place the bowl on top of your stove as the oven preheats, this helps the dough rise). After 30 minutes split the dough in 6 pieces and place on greased cookie sheet (shape isn’t important). Place in preheated 350 degree oven & bake for 20 minutes. Note: If your oven gets very hot the bottom of the biscuits may bake faster than the top. If this is the case, simply flip the biscuits about 10 minutes in to make sure they bake all the way through.
Another note: You can also use this dough for pizza! To do so, make sure you heat the pizza stone or cookie sheet as you preheat the oven. Then spread the dough on heated stone/sheet and bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Then add your favorite toppings and bake the remaining 10 minutes.
Remove from oven, let cool (or not, I like them right out of the oven) & enjoy with your favorite butter or jam. Buen provecho!
