Directions for: Angel Biscuits


1-1/4 tsp istant dry yeast

¼ cup sugar

1-1/2 tbsp warm water (body temperature)

3 cup all purpose flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp fine salt

½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1 cup buttermilk


1. Stir yeast, a pinch of the sugar and water together and set aside while preparing other ingredients. Sift flour, remaining, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour until it’s a rough crumbly texture. Stir the yeast mixture into the buttermilk and add it all to the flour. Mix until a sticky dough comes together, wrap and chill overnight.

2. The next day, preheat oven to 425?F (220?C). On a generously floured surface (dough will be sticky), roll out dough to ½-inch (1 cm) thick and fold dough over in half, pressing down gently. Using a 2-inch (5 cm) round cutter, cut out biscuits and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until just lightly browned.

3. Serve biscuits warm or freeze and re-warm to serve later.
