There is a product in the freezer section that comes in a blue bag with a little dough man on the front. They are ready to bake biscuits. I have tried them and they are mighty convenient for a quick breakfast or dinner. A bag of ten biscuits retails for approximately $3.09. Do you know how much cheaper it is to make your own??? The following recipe made two bags of 13 biscuits each…for a lot less than retail.
Homemade Freezer Biscuits
- 5 cups flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp salt
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup shortening, butter or a combo of both
- 1 envelope yeast
- 2 Tbsp warm water
- 2 cups buttermilk
- In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients.
- Cut the shortening into the flour with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse sand.
- Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
- Add both the yeast water and the buttermilk to the flour.
- Knead the dough until it is no longer sticky and feels elastic.
- Roll out to ½ inch thickness.
- Cut into circles and lay on a cookie sheet.
- Freeze until hard and then place into a freezer container.
- To use: bake at a preheated 425 degrees until tops are light brown…about 15 minutes.
- You can bake these either frozen or unfrozen.
- I recommend you let them thaw on the counter for an hour.
