Yeast Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbls. yeast
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup regular milk with 1 Tbls. vinegar added)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 Tbls. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Instructions

  1. Dissolve yeast in water, set aside. Mix dry ingredients in order given; cut in shortening until the size of small lima beans. Stir in buttermilk & yeast mixture. Cover bowl with towel & let sit until ready to use. (Atleast 1 hour, but it is fine if it sits for a couple hours.) Dough will be very sticky. Scrape out onto well floured board. Flip over & knead lightly (4-6 times). Roll out & cut with biscuit cutter. Place on greased pan & let raise slightly (10-30 minutes). Bake at 400° F until light brown, 10-12 minutes.
