INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
• 1/4 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast 2g
• 1 tablespoon warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 15ml
• 1/2 cup buttermilk 120ml
• 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour 155g
• 3/4 teaspoon baking powder 3g
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1g
• 1/2 teaspoon salt 3g
• 2-1/4 teaspoons white sugar 9g
• 3 tablespoons shortening 40g

Instructions
This recipe’s Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 2 dozen biscuits.
1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 5 minutes. Add buttermilk to yeast mixture, and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in yeast mixture until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 4 or 5 times.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch round cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets, barely touching each other. Cover, and let rise in a warm place free from drafts for 1 hour, or until almost doubled in size. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until browned.

Conclusion
These came out perfectly. The texture was brilliant, very light, a bit crunchy, kinda like puff pastry but not that crunchy. There was no taste however. Maybe I forgot to put the sugar. But the dough did rise as per recipe, so I must have put in sugar? Or is buttermilk/flour food for the yeasts too? Hmm, not so sure….but the texture was great, and there was no flavor. It didn’t taste floury either which was good
