Angel Biscuits

1 pkg dry yeast (2 1/2 tsp = 1 pkg yeast)
1/2 cup warm water
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups buttermilk**
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons shortening

Dissolve yeast in warm water, let stand 10 minutes.
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda in large bowl.
Cut in shortening.
Stir in buttermilk and dissolved yeast mixture until moistened. Roll out on floured surface, being careful not to over handle the dough. Cut into biscuits and bake in greased pie pan at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

*Dough can be stored in covered plastic container for up to one week.

**I usually use powdered buttermilk, follow directions on the can. Mix the dry buttermilk in with the dry ingredients and then add the water with the yeast mixture.

Easy Pudding Dessert

(AKA: Filthy Wilma)

1 1/4 cup flour
1 cube butter or margarine, softened

Mix with fork until fine texture, add 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional), mix together. Press mixture into bottom of 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cool.

First filling:

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 of large cool whip

Mix well and spread over cooled crust.

Second Filling:

1 small package chocolate instant pudding
1 small package vanilla instant pudding
2 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well and spread over first layer, top with remaining cool whip and sprinkle chopped nuts or shredded chocolate. Chill and cut into squares.

* I have substituted sugar free pudding for the regular pudding and have substituted Splenda (not Splenda for baking) for the powdered sugar.

**I have also omitted the chocolate pudding, used 2 vanilla puddings and added sliced strawberries. Or one vanilla and one lemon pudding, or one vanilla and one butterscotch pudding. There are several possible variations.
