Angel Biscuits



My granny used to make Angel Biscuits at Christmas time when I was little. Just to smell them reminds me of her! Here is her {secret} recipe!



Angel Biscuits



about 5 cups all purpose flour



1/4 cup sugar



1 tablespoon baking powder



1 teaspoon baking soda



1 teaspoon salt



1 cup shortening



1 package dry yeast



2 tablespoons warm water



2 cups buttermilk



1/2 cup softened butter



Combine dry ingredients; cut in shortening until mixture is consistency of coarse meal. Dissolve yeast in water; stir yeast mixture and buttermilk into flour mixture, mixing well. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, and roll into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick; spread evenly with butter. Fold dough in half, and cut into 2 inch squares. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake biscuits at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen
