Homemade Freezer Biscuits

biscuits 2

You can make your own frozen biscuits and just pull out how ever many you want instead of baking a whole recipe. Frozen biscuits are delicious, inexpensive and east to make.

4 cups all purpose flour

2 Tbs baking powder

1-1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp soda

1/2 cup butter or lard (or shortening)

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

up to 1/2 cup extra buttermilk if needed

*Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the butter and cut it into the flour until butter is in small pieces and mixture is crumbly. Or use a food processor.

*Add 1 1/2 cups buttermilk to the flour/butter mixture. Combine gently, using your hands, until a soft dough forms.

*Tip bowl onto counter top, scrape the dough out of the bowl onto the counter. Knead a little more flour but not too much! You just want to scoop up the dough and fold it over on itself a few times. The dough will be sticky and soft.

*Allow dough to rest briefly and then gently press the dough to 1” thickness.

*Use a biscuit cutter or deep cookie cutter to form 3″ rounds. You can use most anything as a biscuit cutter, I’ve even used a floured mason jar ring.

*Gently press the scraps together and continue to cut out biscuits.

*Place on wax-paper lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and freeze till solid.

*Remove and place in freezer bags.

*Label with baking instructions.

If you make your biscuits smaller than 3″ you’ll need to watch them in the oven and reduce the baking time to about 12-17 minutes.

Baking Instructions:

To bake, place frozen biscuits on un-greased baking sheet.

Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.

Makes 16-20 3 inch biscuits.
