Ingredients

  • 1

    pkg. dry yeast

  • 1/4

    cup warm water

  • 3/4

    cup buttermilk

  • 2 1/2

    cup flour

  • 3

    T sugar

  • 1 1/2

    tsp. baking powder

  • 1/2

    baking soda

  • 1

    tsp. salt

  • 1/2

    cup shortening

Directions

Dissolve yeast in warm water and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in buttermilk and set aside. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt in mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in yeast-buttermilk mixture. Turn out onto a floured surface; knead lightly 4-6 times. Pat or roll to slightly more than ½ inch thickness. Cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter in flour between cuts. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 to 1 ½ hours or until nearly doubled. Bake in a 450 oven for 7-8 minutes or until golden. Lightly brush tops with melted butter. Makes 16-18 biscuits.
