Ranch Biscuits (yeast)

These are awesome!

2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp melted shortening
2 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 pkg yeast
2/3 cup warm water

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir baking powder, soda and salt into flour and sift dry ingredients. Cut shortening into flour mixture. Add yeast/water mixture and buttermilk. Knead enough to hold together. Let stand 40 minutes at room temperature. Shape into balls or cut out with biscuit cutter. Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes. The dough can be kept on hand in the ref for up to 2 weeks.
