Eufala Angel Biscuits

5 cups flour

3/4 cup shortening

1 TBSP salt

1 TBSP soda

3 TBSP sugar

3 TBSP baking powder

2 cups buttermilk

1 pkg. Yeast, dissolved in ½ cup of warm water

Sift dry ingredients together; cut in shortening. Add buttermilk and yeast mixture; mix well. Roll out desired amount of dough 1/2" thick. Cut biscuits, place on lightly greased skillet or pan. Bake 10 minutes at 400º. Keep excess dough in the refrigerator for up to a week.

These are a "must do" folks! My cowboy pardner Pat Russell gave these a "10", and if its one thing that Charles Patrick Russell knows more about than horses, it's biscuits!
