The southerner in me loves a good homemade biscuit, but I don’t always have time to make them from scratch. Making a batch of biscuits for two people always leaves multiple leftover biscuits that usually get tossed out or fed to a critter. This recipe for frozen biscuits beats any you can buy, and the cost for making it is a fraction of ready mades…The best part is even though they are pre-made and frozen, they really taste like fresh homemade biscuits when they come out of the oven, and you only bake as many as you need per meal. About once a month I mix up a double batch and freeze them. If you enjoy a tender, hot biscuit slathered in butter, this recipe is well worth trying.
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 4 teaspoons baking powder
* 3 teaspoons sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 stick butter
* 1 egg
* 2/3 cup buttermilk
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk egg into buttermilk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 20 times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a floured 3-in. biscuit cutter.
Arrange biscuits in a single layer in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. pan. Cover and freeze overnight or until frozen. Transfer to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
To use frozen biscuits: Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter and your favorite homemade jelly or jam. mmm mmm good.
Until next time…
