Since frugality is not only about money, I came across this recipefor 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…..).Donna
It’s very handy to have these in the freezer to bake at a moment’snotice.
6 cup (1.5 L) all purpose flour
½ cup (125 mL) skim milk powder¼ cup (60 mL) granulated sugar
¼ cup (60 mL) baking powder
2 tsp (10 mL) cream of tartar2 tsp (10 mL) salt
1 ¼ cup (300 mL) cut up butter
1 ¾ cup (425 mL) waterMeasure 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. Workingwith 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 reworkscraps and repeat with remaining ½ of dough. Makes 48 biscuits.

center of 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes until golden.To freeze: Arrange formed biscuits on a baking sheet, not touching.
