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
