Angel Biscuits

Diane Springs


I used to make these biscuits a lot when my kids were young. They're easy, and oh so good! But with the arrival of Grands Frozen Biscuits, I have to admit that i don't make them much anymore. But ever so often, when I want to feel really warm and fuzzy, I get the old recipe out once again and am never disappointed. They are still "Oh so good!"

7Use a biscuit cutter, an empty can, or a glass to cut your biscuits. Be sure and put into flour first, so your biscuit won't stick inside the cutter.

8Be sure and grease your biscuit pan before putting your biscuits in it. I use bacon grease, but you can use PAM if you want to save calories.

9Put your biscuits into the pan and put some bacon grease on top. Not a lot, just enough to moisten lightly. This is another step that you do not have to do - it just adds flavor and makes them brown really well.

10Bake 12 - 15 minutes in a 450 oven. Bake until golden brown!
