1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1 Tbsp. honey
2 1/2 c. sifted flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. vegetable shortening
1 c. buttermilk
Let the yeast soak in a mixture of the water and honey.
Meanwhile, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder,
soda and salt. Using two knives or a pastry blender, cut in the
shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir just
until the dough comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured
surface. Knead lightly, for 30 seconds at the most, and place in a
greased bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 4
When ready to bake, roll out the dough to 1/2-inch thickness
on a lightly floured board. Cut in rounds and place about 1/2-inch
apart on a baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil. Bake at 400 degrees
until golden, about 12 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 2 dozen large
