GG Kitchen : Angel Biscuits

It’s Sunday and on this Mother’s Day I am sharing my Grandmothers Angel biscuit recipe. In her and my Mom honor. As I am making them this Sunday in her kitchen- I can here her saying: watch how much you work the dough.

Angel Biscuits

  • 1package regular or quick active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 2tablespoons warm water (105° to 115°)
  • 2 1/2cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 3tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2teaspoon salt
  • 1/2cup shortening
  • About 1 cup buttermilk
  • Butter or margarine at room temperature, if desired
  • Heat oven to 400°. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside.
  • 2Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in yeast mixture and just enough buttermilk so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 3Place dough on generously floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 25 to 30 times, sprinkling with flour if dough is too sticky. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Brush with butter. Serve hot.

GG Sunday’s Kitchen post is in honor of my Grandmother whose kitchen I cook in everyday. One of the blessing in living in a house passed down through the family. Lisa
