Angel Biscuits

 Ingredients:

5 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 tbs sugar
3/4 cup Crisco
1 pkg dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
2 cups warm buttermilk
Extra flour for kneading and rolling dough

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Set aside.
In a small bowl dissolve the yeast into lukewarm water. Let sit for 3-5 minutes for yeast to activate.
As the yeast activates cut the Crisco into the flour mixture with a pastry blender. Slowly pour the yeast mixture and buttermilk into the flour mixture. Combine to create the dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until dough becomes elastic. Roll and cut into biscuits placing on a sheet pan. Cover and set aside to let dough rise for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter when you remove from the oven.

    1. You can use butter but it will change the texture somewhat.
