Angel Biscuits

1 cake compressed or 1 pkg. active dry yeast
2 t. lukewarm water
5 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening
2 cups buttermilk

Dissolve yeast in water. Sift together flour, soda, baking powder, and salt; cut in shortening as for pastry. Add buttermilk and yeast mixture. Knead dough until smooth. Refrigerate up to three days or until ready to use. Do not use the same day you mix. They are better if they stand overnight in the refrigerator. Roll out biscuits on a floured board to 1/4 to 1/2" thickness. Bake in a 425 degree oven about 20 min. Or until golden. It is not necessary to let biscuits rise after cutting before baking. However they are more tender if allowed to reach room temperature before baking. They'll melt in your mouth!!!
