Recipe: Angel Biscuits

I was asked for my 'Angel Biscuit' recipe by a friend on Facebook today and after I shared the recipe with her I thought some of you might like it as well ...

(Psst!  The college kids we served these to tonight kept saying how good they were!)

Angel Biscuits

5 cups self-rising flour
1/4 sugar

3/4 cup shortening
1 pkg dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast
2 T warm water (110 degrees)
2 cups buttermilk (I have used regular milk if I didn't have buttermilk)

Sift dry ingredients and cut in shortening.

Dissolve yeast in warm water and add with buttermilk to dry mixture.

Mix well forming a dough ball (I use my hands)

(This dough keeps well in the refrigerator until ready to use.)

Roll and cut as desired.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

  1. Patsy, I had to look up what shortening is!! Then I realized that what you call biscuits we would likely call scones. It looks like an interesting recipe. I'd like to see the finished product - baked - if there are any left! For some funny reason, I made a quick count - fifty, I think! Didn't you eat one first this time?!
    Rachel. Thanksgiving sounds wonderful - a bit of a take from the old Feast of Tabernacles/Booths/Sukkot.

    1. Rachel, LOL ... no I didn't eat one first this time! I didn't think to take an after picture, I was so busy. The end product was a light and airy browned biscuit that had doubled in size after it was cooked ... just right to make a ham sandwich with! I've had scones here in the U.S. and these biscuits are not like the scones we get or make here. For shortening in this recipe I used the Crisco brand. Have a great rest of the week, Rachel!
