I found this recipe in one of my cooking light magazines. These biscuits are easy to make and they have a great taste. I used 3 C. white flour and 2 C. wheat flour and vegetable oil instead of the shortening and they turned out perfect!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in a small bowl, let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk to flour mixture; stir until just moist.
  5. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 5 times.
  8. Roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter.
  9. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  10. Brush melted butter over the biscuit tops.
  11. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden.

I knew when I saw the picture and the measurements of the ingredients that this would be the perfect dinner rolls. Will make over and over again! Well done!

Delightful! Light and fluffy with a great taste. Served them last night with steak and your Herbed Basmati Rice and this morning with apple butter. OH yum. Made for adopted chef fall 2008.
