Angel Flake Biscuits

This is the best biscuit recipe I've ever found. My biscuits always seemed to come out very heavy, but these always come out light, fluffy and delicious - and they're easy, too.

5 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder

3 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 cup crisco shortening
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2 cups buttermilk

Dissolve yeast in warm water (about 1/2 cup) - sift dry ingredients into large mixing bowl, cut in shortening with a pastry blender - stir in buttermilk, work into dough.

Spray Ziploc bag with Pam or other veggie spray - dump dough into bag, zip up and keep in fridge (it will rise in bag). The dough lasts about a week in the fridge - you pinch off what you need, roll or shape into 1/2-inch thick biscuits and bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
