CHEESY ANGEL BISCUITS
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Cut 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) cold butter into small cubes.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the beater attachment. Turn the machine on low and pour in the sugar, salt and yeast. Mix the dry ingredients together thoroughly. With the machine running, gradually add the cubed butter piece by piece. Allow the mixer to slowly cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles cornmeal with some pea-sized clumps, about 5 minutes. Add the fresh thyme leaves and mix for 30 seconds more to combine. With the machine still running on low speed, pour in the buttermilk and sour cream. This will pull the mixture together into a sticky dough. Turn the machine off and add the Cheddar. Fold the cheese into the dough on low speed, for about 30 seconds. Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pull the dough together into a smooth disc.
- Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is 1 inch thick. Use a floured 2-inch round biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Collect the dough scraps and roll out and cut again just once more, then discard scraps.
- Melt the remaining 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter in the microwave. Brush the tops of the raw biscuits with half of the melted butter.
- Bake the biscuits until evenly golden brown, 22 to 25 minutes. Brush the biscuits with the remaining melted butter. Serve warm with sorghum, honey and marmalade.
TRISHA YEARWOOD'S ANGEL BISCUITS
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 3 tablespoons of the sugar.
- In a small bowl, combine the warm water with the yeast and the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; stir until the yeast is dissolved. Let stand until bubbles appear, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Using your hands, mix the 1 cup cold butter into the flour, breaking the butter into small pebbles, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Gently fold the flour into the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until a ball starts to form, then gently knead, 12 to 15 times, to create a smooth dough. Cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and press out to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick. Fold the dough in half, press again to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick, and then fold again. Cut the dough using a 2- to 3-inch round biscuit cutter, depending personal preference. Brush the bottom of a cast-iron skillet with some of the melted butter. Place the biscuits in the skillet; brush the tops with melted butter.
- Bake until golden brown, 18 to 22 minutes, depending on size. Brush again with melted butter and serve immediately.
Light, flaky and divine, there's a reason we call these biscuits angelic. This classic homemade angel biscuit recipe uses not one, but three types of leavening agents including yeast, baking powder and baking soda, resulting in the fluffiest biscuits imaginable. Whether you enjoy them for breakfast with a spoonful of jam or serve them as a side at the dinner table, these simple buns can go from kitchen to table in under an hour, making them an easy addition to any meal. To give these homemade angel biscuits their heavenly glow, brush them with melted butter the moment they come out of the oven.

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Dissolve the yeast in warm water and set aside.
- Mix the dry ingredients (in the above order) in a bowl, and then cut in the shortening as you would for a pie crust. When it looks grainy or like little beads, it's time to stir in the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Mix thoroughly but don't overmix.
- The dough is ready to use, or it can be refrigerated in a covered bowl for later.
- When ready to make biscuits, place dough on a well-floured counter or board and knead lightly.
- Roll out (don't overroll or work the dough) and cut with a biscuit cutter.
- Place the biscuits on a greased pan and let rise slightly--this is an important step, especially if you have refrigerated dough.
- Then bake in a 400-degree oven 12-15 minutes.

I remember exactly when I first encountered these celestial biscuits. It was in the early 1970s as I prowled the South in search of great grassroots cooks to feature in a new series I was writing for Family Circle magazine. Through county home demonstration agents, I obtained the names of the local women who'd won prizes at the county and state fairs. I then interviewed two or three of them in each area before choosing my subject. And all, it seemed, couldn't stop talking about "this fantastic new biscuit recipe" that was all the rage-something called Angel Biscuits. The local cookbooks I perused also featured Angel Biscuits, often two or three versions of them in a single volume. Later, when I began researching my American Century Cookbook, I vowed to learn the origin of these feathery biscuits. My friend Jeanne Voltz, for years the Woman's Day food editor, thought that Angel Biscuits descended from an old Alabama recipe called Riz Biscuits, which she remembered from her childhood. Helen Moore, a freelance food columnist living near Charlotte, North Carolina, told me that a home economics professor of hers at Winthrop College in South Carolina had given her the Angel Biscuits recipe back in the 1950s. "I remember her saying, 'I've got a wonderful new biscuit recipe. It's got yeast in it.' " Others I've queried insist that Angel Biscuits were created at one of the fine southern flour millers; some say at White Lily, others at Martha White (and both are old Nashville companies). In addition to the soft flour used to make them, Angel Biscuits owe their airiness to three leavenings: yeast, baking powder, and baking soda. Small wonder they're also called "bride's biscuits." They are virtually foolproof.

- 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- 2. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until the texture of coarse meal. Add the buttermilk and yeast mixture and toss briskly with a fork just until the mixture forms a soft dough.
- 3. Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and with floured hands, knead lightly for about a minute. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out until 5/8 inch thick; then, using a well-floured 2 1/2- to 2 3/4-inch cutter, cut into rounds. Place on ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart. Gather scraps, reroll, and cut as before.
- 4. Bake in the lower third of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until the biscuits are nicely puffed and pale tan on top. Serve at once with plenty of butter.
