1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
4 c. all purpose flour
1 c. cake flour
1T. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 T. sugar
1 c. Crisco
1-3/4 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400.
Sprinkle yeast over warm (NOT HOT) water and sugar; allow to stand 5 minutes. Add buttermilk. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Cut in Crisco
Make a well in the center of dry mix and slowly add the butter milk mixture. Pat dough together and knead gently, about 10 times.
Do not overmix or the biscuits will be tough. Pat into circles about 2 inches in diameter and about 1/2 inch thick.
Place on greased cookie sheets with biscuits just barely touching each other.
Brush with melted butter.
Bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until light gold in color.
