Who doesn't like a delicious, fluffy and warm biscuits? Well, I for one love them. Angel biscuits are a bit different; in that they have yeast unlike your normal baking powder biscuits. I like a tall biscuit, so I roll the dough to about an inch thickness. But if you like one less tall, just roll the dough thinner.
1/4 cup warm water 1 pkg. active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablesppons sugar
1/2 cup shortening, cut into pieces 1 cup buttermilk In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
To the bowl of a food processor, add the dry ingredients and pulse a few times to mix. Add the shortening and pulse a few more times until it forms little pebbles in the flour. Not too much now. Add the buttermilk and yeast mixture and pulse until it forms a sort of sticky ball. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead two or three times, just to form a ball and roll out to about 1 inch thick. Using a 2-inch cutter, cut out the biscuits and place them in a greased pan. While the oven preheats, let the biscuits rise slightly (about 20 minutes). Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 400F. Eat while warm and enjoy.
