A nice alternative to the traditional yeast roll. Kids and adults love them with roasts, ham, turkey or chicken. :)

How to Make Angel Biscuits

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with shortening till crumbly.
    Dissolve the yeast in the warm water
    Add yeast mixture and buttermilk to flour mixture. Stir well.
  • 2Knead on a floured surface and cut into biscuits. Let rise.(note they will not rise as high as yeast rolls - I usually like to provide on avg two hours.)
  • 3Bake at 400 degrees till lightly brown.
    *Can be kept in the refrigerator till ready to bake; however, take them out in time to rise.
    * I often will replace about 3/4 cup of the flour for wheat flour. If you do this increase the yeast.
    Makes about eight biscuits with about a 2-1/2 biscuit cutter.
