  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 2/3 packages dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 9 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Add yeast to warm water. Add other ingredients and let dough rise.
  2. Work into biscuits and let drop into hot fat.

This recipe will make about seven dozen biscuits. They can be frozen individually and stored in plastic bags. When you work them up, don't let the biscuits rise too high. The fat should be slightly hotter than 350 degrees F. If the fat should be too hot, the biscuits will sag in the center.
