admin's picture
Ingredients
  Active dry yeast 1⁄4 Ounce (1 Package)
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Warm water 2 Tablespoon (About 110 Degree F)
  All purpose flour 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs), unsifted
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Firm butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Buttermilk 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Melted butter 1 Tablespoon
Directions

In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and water; let stand until bubbly (about 15 minutes).
In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups of the flour, baking powder, and salt until well mixed.
With a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut in firm butter or margarine to fine crumb stage, as you would for ordinary biscuits.
Beat in yeast mixture and buttermilk to make a moderately stiff dough.
Knead lightly for a few seconds; on a floured board, roll to 1/2-inch thickness.
Cut dough with a 2-inch floured biscuit cutter.
Arrange biscuits in a greased baking pan so they barely touch each other; prick tops in several places with a fork and brush with melted butter.
Let rise in a warm place until almost doubled (30 to 40 minutes).
Bake in a 425° oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden.
Makes about 1 dozen.
