This recipe for Beer Biscuits is fun to make and the yeast in the beer makes the biscuits rise up. I cut these out with a square cookie cutter. They are light and fluffy and would be wonderful for a brunch with country ham or serve them with your favorite jams and jellies. They are great for breakfast or even with a meal.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted (save about 1 tablespoon to brush tops of biscuits)
1 cup beer


Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt until well mixed. Add melted butter and beer. Mix together with a spoon and turn out on a floured surface. I just patted the dough out with my hands but you could roll it out. Cut out biscuits. You can use whatever size cutter you like. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place biscuits on sheet touching each other. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and brush tops with the saved tablespoon of melted butter and place under broiler for a few minutes. I got 15 biscuits with the small square cutter. Using a regular size biscuit cutter you would probably get around 8 to 10. Enjoy!
