2 or 3 Tbsp. sugar
6 c. self-rising flour
1 c. shortening
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
2 c. buttermilk
Sift flour and sugar together. Cut in shortening.
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water (water should be lukewarm
or just barely warm to the touch). Add yeast, water and
buttermilk to flour-shortening mixture and mix well. (It does
well when you stir it up with a spoon.) You can store dough in
refrigerator until needed. Roll out amount of dough desired
and cut into biscuits. Place on greased cookie sheet and let
rise 1 hour before baking. Cover with towel and set on top of
stove or other warm place to rise.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place biscuits in oven and bake
for 15 to 20 minutes. As soon as biscuits are done, brush tops
with butter and serve. After the dough has risen and is cut
into biscuits, you may place the biscuits on paper plates, wrap
well and freeze. Then just remove from freezer, thaw and bake
