Snow Biscuits

Note:  These biscuits are more like a bread

1 (.5-oz.) packet active dry yeast
3/4 cup lukewarm water
2 cups white flour, sifted
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup melted butter

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water (not too hot or it will kill the yeast).  Let set 5 minutes.  Mix in flour, sugar, and salt. Mix in yeast water and melted butter.  Cover dish and let rise for 30 minutes.  Knead on a lightly floured surface.  Roll out and cut in 3-inch circles.  Place on a greased baking pan, cover with a dish towel and allow to raise until double.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Rub butter on tops of hot biscuits for soft crusts.
