“One of our favorite uses for Amish Friendship Bread starter: biscuits that go great with any meal!”
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 24 biscuits
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil
1/4 stick butter, melted
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
- Preheat over to 325° F (165° C).
- Combine all wet ingredients except butter in a medium-size bowl.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a larger bowl and make a well in the center.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the well and whisk until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
- Transfer dough mixture to a lightly-floured surface and roll (or pat with your hands) to 1/2-inch thickness.
- Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out biscuits and place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
- Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter. Cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, removing when the tops are lightly browned. Serve immediately.
If you don’t have a rolling pin handy, flour your hands and use them to pat the dough to the desired thickness. You can also use the mouth of a clean jar (finally a use for that leftover spaghetti sauce jar!) to cut the biscuits, dipping the jar occasionally in flour to keep the dough from sticking.
From Danielle Luton: “I made the biscuits with Chicken Parmesan, and a fresh salad. They were very good, and kind of reminded me of corn bread. They had a nice sweet taste, and tasted great with butter. The kids loved them.”
From Tera Huff: “I served the biscuits with chicken fried steak, creamed corn, mashed potatoes and gravy. My husband and I loved it!”
From Jacqui Rossetter: “Try these–they are great and again so easy to make!”
From Rachel Barna: “These would go perfectly with your favorite Italian dishes. Add in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated or shredded), 2 cloves of garlic (freshly minced) and 1 teaspoon garlic powder (add to melted butter.)”
