Yeast Biscuits

"These biscuits work every time and are really good for making ham biscuits or other 'sandwiches'. They hold up well and yet are tender with a wonderful flavor. Prep time includes rest time."

    Regular or rapid rise yeast?

    Excellent, easy biscuit. I suggest having liquids at 100 - 105 F when working with yeast and keep the shortening (I use Crisco) refrigerator cold. I use a first rise of close to 2 hours, and a second rise of 30 minutes. These biscuits are light and airy but sturdy enough for sausage gravy.
