Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

Today is Friday, and that means another recipe. :-) If you would like to see more recipes, please hop on over to Gayle's and see all of the yummy recipes other people are posting. :-)

OK, yesterday "Little Mark" and were studying fungus. As a "hands on" lesson about spores we activated some yeast and watched it "grow". What does one do when they are already activating yeast? They make bread. :-)

So, "Little Mark" made this all by himself. All I did was supervise, and they were fantastic. :-)

Southern Yeast Biscuits
1 pkg dry yeast
3 C sifted flour
3 T sugar
1/2 t salt
3 T melted butter

Dissolve yeast in 1 cup of warm water, and add 1tablespoon of sugar. Let rise until it almost doubles in size. Melt the butter on the stove. Combine yeast with dry ingredients. Roll out on lightly floured surface to desired thickness and cut out with a biscuit cutter. Dip in butter and place on baking sheet. Let rise for 1 hour. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until brown. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.

I ate mine with honey. :-)

I love me a good biscuit. Top them with some fig preserves and I am set.

Sounds like you all had a great time in Dallas. Love the picture with the Mayans. Colorful people those Mayans.
