Granny’s Angel Biscuits

Granny’s Angel Biscuits

  • 1  1/2 packages dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk

Dissolve the yeast in warm water and set aside.

Sift together the flour and other dry ingredients in large bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender. Add buttermilk and yeast mixture, stir to make a soft dough.

Place dough on floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll dough out 1/2″ thick (no rising is necessary) and cut with a biscuit cutter.

Bake in preheated 400° oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes.

*Note from Granny: Dough may be refrigerated and used as needed, lasts up to one week.

**Note from Laylah: This makes a large batch but they freeze well and can be reheated in foil.
