also known as
Georgia Raised Biscuits

1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons salt
5 cups flour

Soften yeast in water to which sugar has been added. Combine flour and salt and cut in butter. Stir in water. Knead lightly (may need a bit more flour), roll out and cut with biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Lightly brush with melted butter if desired. (Can also stack two high, which is what the originally recipe called for, but we prefer the single layer version.) Let rise for one hour. Then bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Makes two dozen. This recipe came from Jeanine Tibbitts in my Hollister Relief Society Cookbook. The first time we tried it, our school-age boys decided they looked like frisbees. I suspect they actually tested them to see if they flew like frisbees! Hence, we renamed the recipe.
