The best homemade biscuits

After I had my last baby, my sweet neighbor brought over a bag of frozen biscuits. All the directions said was THAW and then COOK @ 400 degrees for 12-15 mins. It was already dinner time so in the freezer they went. Fast forward a few weeks and I needed dinner stat. I took out the biscuits and let them thaw. 30 mins later in the over they went. I got the jam and butter out and waited while they cooked. 

Really these biscuits are mouthwatering. I loved them. I asked my neighbor for the recipe and she happily obligued. I love when people will share their good recipes!

I made this recipe 3 times before they turned out. At some point I had switch my baking soda and baking powder GAH!!! and that is a deal breaker with this recipe. 

Here is the recipe for the best homemade biscuits:

1 pkg yeast and 2 tablespoon water ~ allow to proof

In a large bowl combine these dry ingredients:
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
3 tablespoons baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar

Add: 1 cup shortening and mix like pastry dough, then add 2 cups buttermilk and yeast.
Barely Mix Together.

Pour dough onto a floured surface and shape into a square. Avoid really mixing the dough too much ~ it should be just barley together. see below

Cut into squares and separate onto a cookie sheet and cook at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. OR place in a ziploc freezer bag for later.

* I do alittle of both cook 10-12 and freeze the rest. The smaller the squares the better because it is a yeast dough.
Eat hot with lots of butter and homemade jam!
