Trisha Yearwoood's Angel Biscuits

I saw this on Tricia's show on Food network a week ago. These are supposed to be similar to the recipe used in Nashville at Biscuit Love. We LOVED these. We made them for Easter lunch. Yield depends on the size of your biscuit cutter.

5 cups all-purpose flour Beth needed 6 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
5 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup warm  water
2 packages active dry yeast
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, cold, cut into small squares, plus 4 tablespoons, melted
2 cups buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 3 tablespoons of the sugar.

In a small bowl, combine the warm water with the yeast and the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; stir until the yeast is dissolved. Let stand until bubbles appear, 2 to 3 minutes.

Using your hands or a pastry blender, mix the 1 cup cold butter into the flour, breaking the butter into small pebbles, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Gently fold the flour into the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until a ball starts to form, then gently knead, 12 to 15 times, to create a smooth dough. Cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and press out to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick. Fold the dough in half, press again to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick, and then fold again. Cut the dough using a 2- to 3-inch round biscuit cutter, depending personal preference. Brush the bottom of a cast-iron skillet with some of the melted butter. Place the biscuits in the skillet; brush the tops with melted butter.

Bake until golden brown, 18 to 22 minutes, depending on size. Brush again with melted butter and serve immediately. Original recipe says 8-12 biscuits, but Beth got 24!
