Recipe by pastawendy
READY IN: 32mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • Mix dry ingredients. (You may use some whole wheat flour in place of white flour.).
  • Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or knives.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
  • Add buttermilk and yeast mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to blend.
  • Bring dough together on a floured surface and kneed lightly. (No more than 12 times - this is the key to keeping the biscuits light.).
  • Roll or pat to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut into 3 dozen biscuits.
  • Bake at 450 for 10 - 12 minutes.
  • Alternately, place unbaked biscuits on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Freeze until solid. Store in freezer bags. When you want to use them, remove from freezer and allow to defrost on a baking sheet before baking at 450 for 10 - 12 minutes.
