Angel Biscuits

Serves: 30
Total Calories: 117


5 cups flour (plain)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup shortening
1 package yeast
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cups buttermilk


Dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar (called proofing the yeast, it gets a bit foamy).

Mix dry ingredients well add shortening, yeast and sugar mixture and buttermilk. Work up on a floured surface. Don’t over work. Put in covered container in the refrigerator. Use as needed. Pat out on a floured surface. I use Crisco to grease the bottom of the Dutch and a little pat of it on the top of each biscuit. You don’t have to let these rise first. Cook at 375°F. Use 3-5 briquets underneath and 20-24 on top.
