Angel Flake Biscuits

-Aunt Pam

5 cups flour
3/4 cup shortening
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 T. sugar
1 pkg. yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups buttermilk

Dissolve yeast in water. Sift dry ingredients together; cut in the shortening. Add buttermilk and the yeast dissolved in water. Mix with a spoon til all flour is moist. Cover the bowl and put in refrigerator till ready to use. Can also be used right away. The dough will keep several weeks in the refrigerator. Roll out as much dough as you need on floured surface. Dough should be 1/2"-3/4" thick. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.

Easily halved. Dough is very sticky - just pat instead of trying to roll.
