Basic Biscuits

I found this recipe on Food Network. It is Paula Dean's recipe. Biscuits and sausage gravy is one of my all time favorite breakfasts. I absolutely love this biscuit. I did adjust the amount of salt, what can I say "I'm a saltaholic". Basic Biscuits:
1 package yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 to 1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup solid shortening
2 cups buttermilk

Biscuits: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening. Add yeast and buttermilk and mix well. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter and place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 20-24 biscuits.
-The recipe didn't say to let them rise and Im usually in a hurry so I don't, but this last time I made them I let the second pan raise for a bit, good either way. If you have the time go ahead.

  1. Looks yummy. Do you let them rise at all or put them right in to bake?
