I have seen recipe for Angel biscuits for a long time now. I have wanted to try then since my biscuuit making is not my crowning glory. I can bake anything else..but biscuits always turn out like hockey pucs. This recipe turned out great, light, moist and tender. Even tho I didn't do exactly as the recipe sez. My homemade turkey soup was simmering away when I decided to make biscuits to go with it. I decided on this recipe and instead of refrigerating them for 12 hrs. I let them rest and rise for about 30 minutes. I also used 1/2 white whole wheat flour and q/w AP flour. It still turned out well and was a very good biscuit. My family was really surprised when they bit into them..lol..not mom's usual hockey pucs.

i was looking for a recipe similar to what i had lost several years ago...this indeed was a better find! I didn't give it 5 * b/c i didn't have the buttermilk nor vegetable oil to try it as is...i had olive oil on hand and used chicken broth in lieu of the milk...it turned out amazingly well :) for those using this for the first time, don't think of "biscuit" as the thicker dough we use...this dough is very moist, light and moldable. make sure you do put it on a floured surface and sprinkle flour on top before patting or rolling out...dont be tempted to overwork the dough trying to incorporate the flour all it in. keep it simple and these will turn out light and fluffy!!!! thank you for submitting :)

I followed this recipe exactly as posted, and was very disappointed. The dough was slack, and required quite a bit of flour on the work surface. Once cut and placed on the prepared pan, the biscuit didn't hold any shape at all. I would not make this recipe again. reagan1

This recipe is perfect. I was looking for a healthier biscuit recipe that used oil instead of shortening, as well as one I could make ahead of time. This one matched my search so I tried it. Everyone loved them. I made "sausage" gravy with vegetable "sausage" substitute and even my dad (on a heart healthy diet) could eat all the biscuits and gravy he wanted! Thank your Grandma for this recipe please!
