  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Allow to stand until mixture is frothy.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add shortening and work until crumbly. Mix in yeast mixture and buttermilk. Store, well covered, in a greased bowl in the refrigerator. Don't worry if it is a little sticky; it will firm up as it chills. Dough can be stored up to 2 weeks.
  3. When ready to make rolls, take out amount needed. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, and knead for 2 or 3 minutes. Roll out, and cut rolls. Place in greased muffin cups. Let rise for 30 minutes.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Real easy...couldn't wait for the dough to "cool down" much though. It still worked out really good. Family loved them. I made a 1/2 batch to try out. Will definitely have to make full batc...

These are wonderful you can make your dough in the morn and cook the bisciuts for dinner.

I had some problems with this recipe, mostly my own fault. I tried to make it in the food processor, like I do with my other biscuit recipe, and I cannot stress enough what a BAD idea that was. ...
