Another Angel Yeast Biscuit

"Found these on another site while looking for a recipe for yeast biscuits. Tried these and they are fairly simple, rise nicely and taste very light. We had them with eggs, bacon and hot gravy with jam on the side for those that wanted it. What a nice way to start the day. Time does not include rising time."

    I'm not sure what I did wrong. These didn't turn out like they were supposed to. I made them in my bread machine (maybe this is where I went wrong). I used a larger biscuit cutter than suggested. When I let them rise, they expanded out, not up...they tasted a little "yeasty" but I put some jelly on it & it tasted pretty good. I will try again without the bread machine & see if that works better.<br/>Made for Spring PAC 2014
