Dissolve yeast in warm water; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking soda. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender untilmixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in yeast mixture and buttermilk; mix well. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly a few times. Roll to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes. Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
I call these rolls Miracle Rolls because they always bake up miraculously light and airy. I usually make the dough the night before and refrigerate it. Then the next day, I punch it down, shape the rolls and let them rise. They're best fresh and warm from the oven.
