A nice alternative to the traditional yeast roll. Kids and adults love them with roasts, ham, turkey or chicken. :)

Serves:

makes about eight rolls but depends on your biscuit cutter

Ingredients

1
pkg. yeast
1/4 c
warm water
1 c
buttermilk
1/2 c
shortening
2 1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1/4 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with shortening till crumbly.
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water
Add yeast mixture and buttermilk to flour mixture. Stir well.
2
Knead on a floured surface and cut into biscuits. Let rise.(note they will not rise as high as yeast rolls - I usually like to provide on avg two hours.)
3
Bake at 400 degrees till lightly brown.
*Can be kept in the refrigerator till ready to bake; however, take them out in time to rise.
* I often will replace about 3/4 cup of the flour for wheat flour. If you do this increase the yeast.
Makes about eight biscuits with about a 2-1/2 biscuit cutter.
