For Tasty Tuesday this week, I’m bringing back an oldie but a goodie that I posted this fall since I’m making these today! In the spring/summer months, it gets really hectic around here with so much to do and so much sunshine to enjoy. I take a day and make enough biscuits to put away for a while in the freezer. 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:
First, gather the following ingredients:
- 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!
do you melt the butter??
I normally just leave it on the counter a few hours prior, but melting is fine as well.
