Angel Flake Biscuits

If you're looking for a biscuit that's very flaky, then look no more! With the yeast and the self-rising flour to fluff these up, you're in for a real treat!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 (0.25-ounce) package yeast
  • 5 1/2 cups self-rising flour, plus more for rolling out
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degree F. In a small bowl, combine the water and yeast and let stand for 5 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour and the sugar. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut the shortening into the flour mixture until crumbly. Add the yeast mixture and the buttermilk and stir until a soft dough forms.

  3. Generously flour a flat surface and roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin to 3/4 inch thick. The dough will be sticky. With a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut the dough into biscuits and place on rimmed baking sheets that have been coated with nonstick cooking spray.

  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until light golden. Serve immediately, or remove to a wire rack to cool completely.                                                                                                                                                            Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
Notes

If you don't have a biscuit cutter, an appropriately sized drinking glass can be used to cut the biscuit rounds. If you don't want to make all the biscuits at once, the dough will keep in the refrigerator for several days. When ready to use, roll it out, cut it, and let it stand for 15 minutes before baking as directed.
