    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    From Vegetarian Times, biscuits made with yeast so that they're light and flavourful. I've edited this recipe a bit to include RecipeBaroness' suggestions. The buttermilk should be warm rather than room temperature and a bit of the sugar should be added to the buttermilk.

      Well it took me two tries at this and I'll be the first to say I'm Biscuit challenged. I think the problems I had were with the buttermilk and yeast mixture. I don't ever think the buttermilk got warm enough. I let them sit for about an hour before baking and they didn't rise at all. Didn't do much in the oven either. The outside was a little tough but the inside was great. I only got about 6 biscuits from this recipe. Thanks

      These were easy enough but didn't rise very well. The consistancy is more like a roll than a biscuit, but still a very tasty bread.
