Diane's notes for this recipe:
I used to make these biscuits a lot when my kids were young. They're easy, and oh so good! But with the arrival of Grands Frozen Biscuits, I have to admit that i don't make them much anymore. But ever so often, when I want to feel really warm and fuzzy, I get the old recipe out once again and am never disappointed. They are still "Oh so good!"

Directions

1
Before you even start this recipe, put two TBS warm water in a small bowl and pour yeast over it. Let it stand until it dissolves and "grows." See picture!
2
Mix all dry ingredients. Add 1/2 cup Crisco and use a pastry blender or a fork and stir until "crumbly."
3
Add Buttermilk and then your yeast mixture and mix well.
4
Lightly flour your cabinet top or something to put your biscuits on.
5
Add Biscuit mixture.
6
Lightly pat with your hands until about an inch thick. You do not have to knead.
7
Use a biscuit cutter, an empty can, or a glass to cut your biscuits. Be sure and put into flour first, so your biscuit won't stick inside the cutter.
8
Be sure and grease your biscuit pan before putting your biscuits in it. I use bacon grease, but you can use PAM if you want to save calories.
9
Put your biscuits into the pan and put some bacon grease on top. Not a lot, just enough to moisten lightly. This is another step that you do not have to do - it just adds flavor and makes them brown really well.
10
Bake 12 - 15 minutes in a 450 oven. Bake until golden brown!

I make these instead of regular biscuits. they are so yummy. Don't you let your rise for a bit beforebaking ? just wondering. I always do for at least 20 minutes. They look so scrumptuous
