Ingredients:  
1 pkg. dry yeast
4 tbsp. water, warm
1/3 cup sugar, divided
5 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups buttermilk*
Butter, melted

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water with 2 tbsp. of the sugar. Set aside while mixing remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in the large bowl of a food processor. Add shortening, cut into pieces, and pulse on and off, scraping as needed, to incorporate. (Without a food processor, cut shortening into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers until mixture is in fine particles.) Add buttermilk and yeast and mix until mixture resembles yeast dough. Make biscuits or place dough in a covered bowl in refrigerator and use as needed. To make biscuits, roll out portions of dough on lightly floured surface until 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass. Place biscuits on a greased cookie sheet. Brush tops with melted butter. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for an hour. (Some cooks skip the rising step and bake the biscuits immediately.) Bake at 425 degrees for 10 15 minutes or until brown. Makes about 2-1/2 to 3 dozen biscuits.
