In large bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attachment in place, sprinkle yeast in warm water to soften. With mixer on low speed, add buttermilk, sugar & warm (NOT HOT) melted crisco. Turn off mixer.
Sift together in a large bowl flour, salt & soda. Turn mixer on low and gradually add flour mixture to liquid mixture. Turn up speed of mixer as needed when flour has all been added. Beat till dough is smooth & elastic. Turn off mixer & let dough rest 10 minutes. While dough rests, prepare 2 baking pans, 9x13" by greasing sides & bottoms with crisco.
Remove dough from bowl & place on lightly floured board or surface. Sprinkle with flour just eniugh to keep dough from sticking to your hands or rolling pin. Press or roll dough out & divide into 24 equal pieces. Shape as desired & place 12 rolls in each of the prepared pans. Cover with clean dish towels & place in warm, draft free place to rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400* F. When dough has doubled in size, about 30 minutes, place pans in oven & bake for 12 to 15 minutes or till LIGHTLY browned. Remove from oven & serve warm.
If you don't have buttermilk, place 1 Tbsp white vinegar in a 1 cup measure & add milk to reach 1 cup. Once you've made these rolls, it gets easier each time!! Enjoy!!!
