Directions:
Dissolve the yeast in the 1/4 cup of warm water and set aside. Mix the dry ingredients in the order given, cutting in the shortening as you normally do for biscuits or pie dough. Stir in the buttermilk also the water with the yeast in it. Blend thoroughly and the dough is ready to be refrigerated in a large bowl, covered, or made into biscuits.
When you are ready to work the dough, turn it out onto a floured board and knead lightly as for regular biscuits. Roll out and cut with a biscuit cutter and place in a greased pan. Let the biscuits rise slightly (if the dough is cold it will take a little longer for them to rise than when first mixed). Pop into a 400 oven until lightly browned. Note:
You can mix the dough the night before.
