  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 5 minutes. Add buttermilk to yeast mixture, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in yeast mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 4 or 5 times.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch round cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets, barely touching each other. Cover, and let rise in a warm place free from drafts for 1 hour, or until almost doubled in size. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until browned.

I've been looking for a recipe like this. Sooo good. They taste just like our favorite biscuits at Cracker Barrel. My husband loves them.

Delicious! I had to use powdered buttermilk, but they came out wonderfully. My family ate heaps of them and my son said I need to make these from now on. A keeper!

These biscuits turned out great! They really are a cross between a biscuit and a roll. I made enough to freeze and pull a few out at a time. A keeper!

Instead of making biscuits, I wrapped 1 lb of pre-cooked cocktail sausages with the dough and then baked according to the directions. This recipe is definitely part of my permanent collection...

Delicious! These biscuits have the texture of a tender buttermilk biscuit and the rich flavor of a yeast roll. Love 'em! A tip for lazy bakers... I usually pat biscuits into a rectangle and t...

These were very good and easy to make. Mine did not rise that much but I think that was do to my yeast. We enjoyed them and will make them again.
