Angel Biscuits are so named because they rise more than the traditional biscuit due to the addition of yeast. They're lighter and airier--like a roll. Biscuits can be made ahead and frozen. Before freezing biscuits, bake 10 minutes; cool. Place biscuits in freezer bags, and freeze. To prepare biscuits for serving, remove from freezer; place biscuits on lightly greased baking sheets, and let thaw. Bake at 450 degrees for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

How to Make Angel Biscuits

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine yeast and warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Add buttermilk to yeast mixture, and set aside.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients except shortening in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk mixture, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn biscuit dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 or 5 times.
  3. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, for 1 hour. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until browned.
