1 pkg yeast (slow rise)
3 tbs water (105-115 degrees). Put over yeast.
Sift 5 cups self-rising White Lilly flour
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp soda (note from Laurie: baking powder)
Cut in 1 cup Crisco
2 cups buttermilk
Put into yeast.
Make 1 day before you want to bake.
Bake on greased sheet in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until brown.
(notes from Laurie: I always add in a tsp of baking soda and a pinch of salt to my dough. This is also the rare occasion where I’d go a little lower on temp than Grandma – I usually do 350 for 12 minutes.)
