Grama Delker’s sourdough biscuits

My grandmother-in-law cooked all her life for a living. These biscuits are a family favorite and are still served at the restaurant where she cooked. It’s a true road food restaurant in Springdale, Arkansas. The walls are decorated with a living bee hive, many Indian arrowheads, some animal heads, and family photos. There are other things as well, but the bee hive was the most memorable.

1 pkg yeast
1 c warm water
2 c buttermilk
3/4 c corn oil
1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp soda
4 tsp baking bowder
2 tsp salt
6 c AP flour

Dissove the yeast in warm water. Then add the buttermilk. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Store the dough in the refrigerator. This dough will keep in fridge for several days. Make out the desired number of biscuits and set in a warm place to rise. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 425.

You can add a little extra flour and make dinner rolls. Let the rolls rise well in a warm place, then bake.
