DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dissolve the yeast in warm water and set aside.
  • Mix the dry ingredients (in the above order) in a bowl, and then cut in the shortening as you would for a pie crust. When it looks grainy or like little beads, it's time to stir in the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Mix thoroughly but don't overmix.
  • The dough is ready to use, or it can be refrigerated in a covered bowl for later.
  • When ready to make biscuits, place dough on a well-floured counter or board and knead lightly.
  • Roll out (don't overroll or work the dough) and cut with a biscuit cutter.
  • Place the biscuits on a greased pan and let rise slightly--this is an important step, especially if you have refrigerated dough.
  • Then bake in a 400-degree oven 12-15 minutes.
