Herb Buttermilk Biscuits

Herb Buttermilk Biscuits

Sometimes known as "angel biscuits," this type of biscuit is made with yeast, which makes the end result extra light and tender. You can find fresh poultry herbs (a mixture of thyme, sage, rosemary, and marjoram) packaged together in many produce sections along with other fresh herbs. Otherwise, blend your own herbs as desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1/4-oz.) package active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 9 tablespoons butter, divided

Preparation

Combine yeast and warm water (100° to 110°) in a 1-cup glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.

Whisk together flour and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut 1 stick of butter into small pieces. Cut into flour mixture with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add yeast mixture, buttermilk, and herbs; stir with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.
