Angel BiscuitsAngel Biscuits

This Angel Biscuits Recipe came from an old church cookbook. It has been adapted it slightly (the original recipe did not call for any rise time outside of the oven, and we found just 30 minutes before going into the oven does produce the best results) and made these all the time when I was growing up.

I think I would use the term “biscuit” loosely. These are soft and fluffy, not as dense and “crumbly” as a typical southern style biscuit.

This recipe uses a “cold rise” method and you will want to explain that to your readers. The biscuits are placed into a cold oven. Do not preheat the oven. The biscuits will finish rising in the oven as it heats. As soon as the oven reaches 400 degrees, set a timer for 10 minutes and allow the biscuits to bake until golden brown.

Angel BiscuitsIn a small bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water, and honey. Set aside for 5-10 minutes until the mixture is foamy.

Angel BiscuitsIn a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Angel BiscuitsKnead for 30-60 second until smooth (the dough will still be sticky).

Pat the dough out into a 6×6 inch square and cut into 9 square biscuits.

Angel BiscuitsPlace the biscuits onto a greased cookie sheet and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes to begin rising.
