Biscuits- Make & Freeze
We love fresh biscuits, but some evenings, it's too much of a pain to mix up a batch. Here is a simple baking powder biscuit recipe that you can make ahead of time and freeze. When you're in the mood for some fresh hot biscuits, simply take out enough for that meal, pop them in the oven and in 15-17 minutes, you'll have fresh biscuits.
- 1/2 c. shortening
- 4 c. all purpose flour
- 2 T. Sugar
- 2 T. Baking Powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 c. milk
Mix the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder until well blended, cut in shortening until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Add the milk, mixing until incorporated, but don't over mix as it will make the biscuits tough.
Turn dough onto floured surface, knead lightly. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick and cut out. Place the biscuits on a floured tray and place them in the freezer for a couple hours or overnight. Once firm, place them in a vacuum seal bag, seal.
Recipe makes 18-20 biscuits.
- Remove as many as you want to cook
- Place them touching slightly on an ungreased cookie sheet
- Place them in the oven, (Turn it to 450F) bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown. No Need to preheat the oven.
- Do Not thaw before cooking.
