No Photo

Yield: about 7 dozen biscuits


  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 2/3 packages dry yeast or 1/6 cup yeast
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 6 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 9 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Add yeast to warm water.
  2. Add other ingredients and let dough rise.
  3. Work dough into biscuits and drop into hot fat*.
  4. Serve with apple butter.


* The fat should be slightly hotter than 350 degrees F. If fat is too hot, the biscuits will be soggy in the center.

Biscuits can be frozen individually and stored in plastic bags. When you work them up, don't let the biscuits rise too high.
