Warm the water in a small saucepan to 105° to 115°F.
Stir in 1 teaspoon of the sugar.
Add the yeast and stir until dissolved.
Allow the yeast to proof (bubble).
Sift the flour, remaining 1/3 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture and stir until well mixed.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3 or 4 times.
Roll the dough out until it is about 1/2 inch thick and cut into rounds with a 2-inch cookie cutter.
Place on the cookie sheet, cover with a kitchen towel, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 45 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F while the biscuits are rising.
Bake the biscuits for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
