Serves:
2 dozen
Prep:
1 Hr 20 Min
Cook:
10 Min

Ingredients

1 pkg
dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
1/2 c
warm water (100° to 110°)
5 c
all-purpose flour (about 22 1/2 ounces)
1/4 c
sugar
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1/2 c
vegetable shortening
2 c
low-fat buttermilk
cooking spray
1 Tbsp
butter, melted

Step-By-Step

1Dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup warm water in a small bowl, and let stand for 5 minutes.
2Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk to flour mixture; stir just until moist. Cover and chill 1 hour.
3Preheat oven to 450°.

Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 5 times. Roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush the melted butter over the biscuit tops. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until golden.
