1/2 cup warm water
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon yeast
5 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter

Yield: 2 dozen biscuits Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the warm water and honey together and dissolve the yeast in the water-honey mixture.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and shortening and mix with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles fine cornmeal.

Mix the buttermilk and Bourbon with the yeast mixture; add these ingredients to the flour mixture. Combine lightly until the ingredients are just mixed together.
