Angel Biscuits

Yield about 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 5 cups self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

How to Make It

  1. Combine yeast and warm water, stirring to dissolve; let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly. Set aside.

  2. Place flour in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Dissolve soda in buttermilk; add to flour mixture, stirring with a fork. Stir in sugar and yeast mixture, mixing well. Cover tightly and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 4 to 5 times.

  4. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise 1 hour. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
