*Angel Biscuits* (Diabetic)

Hello everyone! Today's diabetic recipe is Angel Biscuits. Occasionally biscuits are a great accommodation to a meal. These are good. You just have to remember to not over kneed them. If you do they come out hard and these biscuits should be flaky. Well enjoy!

*Angel Biscuits*

Servings: 24 biscuits.

5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tabls. Honey
3 tabls. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 0.25-oz. pkg. active dry yeast, or 2 1/2 tsp. Bread Machine Yeast
3 tabls. warm water
2 cups buttermilk, or 1% milk

Preheat oven at 450F.
Grease a baking sheet and set aside. In a mixing bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in shortening to resemble small peas; set aside. Dissolve yeast in warm water (105-115F). Add yeast and buttermilk to flour mixture and mix with a fork to make a soft dough. Knead just till dough is mixed (over mixing will cause biscuits to be hard). Roll dough out on a floured surface. Cut out with a biscuit cutter. Place on greased
baking sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.
Makes 24 biscuits.
