  • 2: Add the buttermilk and vanilla and blend well.

  • 5: The mixture will combine into a pasty lump. Scoop it out of the bowl with a spatula and spread on a floured surface.
  • 6: Sift the flour and 3/4 cup of the sugar together and use your fingertips to work it into the egg-lemon mixture. Do this carefully so as not to work in too much gluten.

  • 8: Brush each angel with melted butter.
  • 9: Place angels one inch apart on ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
