Grandma’s Potato Biscuits

I have been looking for the perfect biscuit recipe for a while. These are really good…very light and fluffy!

Grandma’s Potato Biscuits

4-4 1/2 cuos flour

1 tbs yeast

1 tbs sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 cup milk

4 tbs butter

1 cup mashed potatoes (instant will work)

2 eggs

1. In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. mix well.

2. Heat milk until very warm. Add to flour. Add potatoes and eggs and mix well.. Stir in enough flour to make a soft, slightly sticky dough. Knead for 8 minutes or use a mixer with a dough hook.

3. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll or pat to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut dough with a biscuit cutter (I use a glass!) and place on greased cookie sheet.. Cover and let sit until double. (about 45 minutes)

5. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

Enjoy. These are super good with jam!
