Ingredients For angel biscuits

    pkg. yeast
  • 1/4 c

How To Make angel biscuits

  • 1
    Mix 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.
  • 2
    Knead 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.)
  • 3
    Bake 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.
