Bran Pan Biscuits

I'm assuming these are called biscuits because you don't really knead them. But you do use yeast instead of baking powder and let them rise a couple of times, so they're not your typical biscuits. Bran Pan Biscuits

1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whole bran or oats
1 egg
3 tablespoons shortening
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour (1/2 wheat)

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in sugar, salt, bran, egg, shortening, and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour and place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise 1 1/2 hours. Punch down the dough and shae into 1 1/2 inch balls. Use greased hands because it will be sticky. Place in 2 greased cake pans. Cover and let rise until double, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Makes 2 dozen.
