I love making homemade biscuits, however with as busy as I am, I don’t have time to make fresh biscuits every morning. To solve this problem, I’ll make a big batch of biscuits, freeze them, and then pull out what I need. It helps prevent waste and overeating as well by just pulling out the number I need. Here’s how to make your own freezer biscuits:
- 5 cups self rising flour
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 1 cup butter or shortening
- 1 3/4 cup buttermilk or milk
Add everything into the bowl and stir well until the dough has formed. If it seems too sticky, add in a little extra flour as needed.
Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch and use a cup or a cookie cutter to form the biscuits.
Place the biscuits on a pan. It’s okay to have them super close together since they will not be rising. If you have more than one layer, be sure and place wax paper in between the layers so they do not stick together.
Immediately put the biscuits into the freezer, making sure that they stay flat.
After a few hours when they are frozen, remove them from the pan and place in a freezer safe bag and return the bag of biscuits to the freezer.
Pull biscuits from bag as needed and bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Yum! Give it a try and see what you think!
