Angel Biscuits: My family likes these and they're pretty easy. 1 package yeast 5 to 5 Â½ cups flour 3 tsp. Baking powder 1 tsp. Salt 2 cups buttermilk 2 Tbsp. Lukewarm water 1 tsp. Baking soda 4 Tbsp. Sugar 1 cup of shortening Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Sift the dry ingredients together. Cut in the shortening. Add yeast and buttermilk to dry mix. Knead enough for the dough to hold together. Roll dough about Â½ to Â¾ inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter and fold in half. (I don't always fold). Place in a greased pan. If you're not folding you can flip them over so that the tops are greased as well. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 to 20 minutes.
