Did you know you can make yeast raised biscuits? Angel Biscuits are light, fluffy, and so soft! Just perfect with a bowl of soup.



  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) instant yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm water, heated to about 110 degrees
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup milk


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, warm water, and honey. Set aside for 5-10 minutes until the mixture is foamy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the butter is completely combined.
  3. Add the milk and yeast mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until combined, then turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 30-60 second until smooth (the dough will still be sticky).
  4. Pat the dough out into a 6×6 inch square and cut into 9 square biscuits.
  5. Place 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.
  6. Remove the kitchen towel, then place the sheet of biscuits in a cold oven. Set the oven to 400F degrees. When the oven temperature reaches 400F, bake the biscuits for 10 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Serve the biscuits warm with butter, jam, or honey
