 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      package       dry yeast
      1/4  cup           warm water
    2 1/2  cups          flour
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      baking soda
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/8  cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           cold butter -- *
    1      cup           buttermilk -- * see note
 
 Dissolve the yeast in warm water and set it aside.  Put all the other dry ingre
 dients, in the order that they are listed, in a bowl and mix.  Then cut the but
 ter into the mixture as you would for pie dough.
 
 Pour the buttermilk and the yeast mixture in the bowl with the other ingredient
 s, blending well but not overbeating.
 
 Refridgerate until needed, then warm to room temperature to allow it to rise.
 
 When you are ready, gently roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and cu
 t, using a biscuit cutter or a small glass to cut our biscuits.  Put them on a 
 greased pan and let them rise a bit (10 to 15 minutes) before popping them in a
 n oven heated to 400ø for 12 to 15 minutes.
 
 *For buttermilk I always substitute: 1 tablespoon of vinegar into a cup of ordi
 nary milk and bring to room temp in the microwave.  Works great!
 
 *The original recipe calls for shortening but I don't use it.

 NOTES : I've had this recipe clipped from who-knows-where for years and then re
 cently discovered it in a great bread book called “Bread Alone.”
