|These Honey Angel Biscuits were described as "Tasty!" and given a thumbs up by The Mister.|
Honey Angel Biscuitsfrom the Southern Living 1995 Annual Recipes, Page 138
I halved the recipe from the book.
1 1/8 tsp yeast
1 TBSP warm water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup buttermilk
2 TBSP honey
I added the yeast to the water and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I added the flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening to the yeast mix and cut the shortening with a pastry blender. To these ingredients, I added the buttermilk and honey and stirred until combined. The dough was kneaded and cut with a three inch biscuit cutter. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.
I rolled these about 1/4 inch thick and they were too thin for biscuits. The recipe instructs to roll them 1/2 inch thick.
