Serves 6people
Ingredients
1
package active dry yeast (about .25 ounce)
1/4
cup warm water, about 110° F
2
cup warmed buttermilk, about 110° F
5-5 1/4
cups all-purpose flour
1/4
cup granulated sugar
2
tsp baking powder
1
tsp baking soda
1
tbsp salt
3/4
cup chilled shortening
4
tbsp chilled butter
melted butter
Directions
1.
Dissolve the yeast in the 1/4 cup of warm water. Set aside.
2.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal, with some small pea-size pieces of fat. Stir in yeast mixture and buttermilk, blending well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead with floured hands just a few turns. Pat into a round about 1/2-inch thick. Cut with 2- to 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutters. Place cut out biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover with a dish cloth and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. Bake at 400° for about 15 to 20 minutes. Brush tops with the melted butter while still hot. Makes about 2 to 3 dozen angel biscuits, depending on size.
