Angel Biscuits Recipe

Angel Biscuits Recipe


  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 package Fleischman’s Quick Acting Yeast (dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder (check date for freshness)


This is kinda big recipe, but you can freeze half before cooking.

In a large mixing bowl, work shortening into flour with a pastry blender. Add all reaming ingredients, wet & dry, & stir well … A wooden spoon works best. Lightly flour your work surface & dump dough out. Roll dough around until covered with flour. Mash down & roll out to desired thickness. (They will just about double in thickness when baked.) Cut out & place in lightly greased baking pan. Place side-by-side, just touching, so sides will be soft. Brush tops lightly with melted butter & bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 min. or until tops are light brown.
