Angel Biscuits or Rolls

Updated on March 23, 2015

These are delicious light and fluffy biscuits. You have to let them rise so allow enough time if making them for breakfast.

5 cups flour

¼ cup sugar

1 cup shortening

1 package or 2 ¼ teaspoons of dry yeast

2 tablespoons warm water

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk room temperature (if you don’t have buttermilk use milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to equal 2 cups.)

Preaheat oven to 400 degrees.

Grease a baking pan.

Mix yeast and 2 tablespoons of warm water together in small bowl and set aside. Sift dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry cutter. Mix buttermilk and yeast mixture together and add to dry ingredients. Mix well.

Shape into rolls and put in a warm place to rise. Usually takes about an hour to two hours depending on how warm your kitchen is. I've even put mine in the garage on the hood of my car with a towel over it in the summer when I have the air conditioning on.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Dough will keep in plastic bag in refrigerator for a week, use as needed. You can also shape and freeze with wax paper separating them.

      I have tried making angel biscuits before, but didn't rise enough in the oven. I wasn't a big fan of the recipe book I got it out of. I might give yours a try sometime.
