  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside.
  • 2
    Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in yeast mixture and just enough buttermilk so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 3
    Place dough on generously floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 25 to 30 times, sprinkling with flour if dough is too sticky. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Brush with butter. Serve hot.

Expert Tips

Yeast makes these biscuits light as angels! If you have time, you can make them even lighter. Just cover unbaked biscuits and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until puffy. Bake as directed.
