Frozen Biscuits


5 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup shortening
Two packages yeast
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups buttermilk

Sift dry ingredients together, cut in shortening. Dissolve yeast in warm
water; add to milk. Add milk mixture to dry ingredients and mix well. Turn
dough onto floured surface and knead gently several strokes. Pat or roll out
to desired thickness; cut and place on greased cookie sheet and freeze. If
desired, when biscuits are frozen, roll each in melted butter that has been
cooled to room temperature. Place biscuits in freezer bags or freezer
containers. Defrost biscuits 30 minutes before baking; bake at 400 F until
browned. Makes 4 to 5 dozen biscuits.
