    2      C             Buttermilk
    1      C             Shortening
    1      Pkg           Dry Yeast
      1/4  C             Warm Water
    4      Tbsp          Sugar

 Warm buttermilk and add shortening, stirring to melt, and cool.  Add the
 yeast which has been softenend in 1/4 cup warm water.  Add sugar.  Sift
 together and add flour, salt, and baking powder.  Stir to mix and cover with
 a damp cloth and an inverted plate.  Chill overnight.  At this point, the
 dough will keep about 5 dayse to be used as needed.  The 6th & 7th days, use
 the dough as cobbler topping or for fried pies.
 
 When ready t use dough, roll out 1/4 thick, cut in 1 1/2 rounds, brush
 each round with melted butter and stack two together.  Place in greased pan,
 almost touching.  Let rise 1 hour, then bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until
 done, depending on size of biscuits.
 
 A good use for Angel Biscuit Dough on the 6th & 7th days is Fried Apple
 Pies.
