  • 4-1 / 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1- 1 / 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 / 4 cup warm water (100o to 110oF)
  • 1 envelope Active Dry Yeast
  • 3 / 4 cup warm milk (100o to 110oF)
  • 1 cup potato, boiled and mashed
  • 2 large eggs


Makes: 24 biscuits

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, and salt. With pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.


Place warm water in bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add yeast mixture, milk and mashed potato to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours.

Remove dough from refrigerator; roll on lightly floured surface to 1 / 2-inch thickness. Cut with 2-1 / 2-inch biscuit cutter; place on lightly greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake at 400°F for 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from sheet; serve warm.
