    Default Recipe for Freezer Biscuits


    Since frugality is not only about money, I came across this recipe

    for Freezer biscuits that you make ahead, freeze and bake straight

    from frozen. This would be a great time saver. Haven't tried this

    yet (speaking of time.....).


    Freezer Biscuits

    It's very handy to have these in the freezer to bake at a moment's


    6 cup (1.5 L) all purpose flour

    ½ cup (125 mL) skim milk powder

    ¼ cup (60 mL) granulated sugar

    ¼ cup (60 mL) baking powder

    2 tsp (10 mL) cream of tartar

    2 tsp (10 mL) salt

    1 ¼ cup (300 mL) cut up butter

    1 ¾ cup (425 mL) water

    Measure first 6 ingreditents into a larger bowl and stir well. Cut

    in butter with pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    Add water. Stir until moistened enough to form a soft ball. Working

    with ½ of the dough, turn out onto a slightly floured surface. Knead

    8 to 10 times. Pat out dough to ¾ inch (2 cm) thickness. Cut using

    round (3 inch/7 cm) cutter, pushing straight down. Gently rework

    scraps and repeat with remaining ½ of dough. Makes 48 biscuits.

    To bake, arrange frozen biscuits on ungreased baking sheet. Bake in

    center of 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes until golden.

    To freeze: Arrange formed biscuits on a baking sheet, not touching.

    Freeze uncovered for 2 hours. Remove biscuits to freezer bags and

    label. Freeze for up to three months.

    Tip: Try substituting the all purpose flour with barley flour or

    whole wheat flour.

    I'm on digest, so maybe someone has already answered this, but cream of tartar

    is a leavening agent and can be found in the baking/spice aisle. There isn't

    any substitute for it that I know of. Cream of tartar can also be used to MYO

    baking powder if you ever run out of it. HTH Wendy

    substitute that?

    Hi, Maria

    I am not sure where you live but here in Canada cream of tartar is

    found in the baking aisles of supermarkets where the baking soda,

    baking powder, spices, etc. are kept.

    Cream of tartar is also called potassium bitartrate if that helps to

    locate it.
