Freezer Biscuits: What Did You Bake Today?

Just so that all of you feel comfortable posting things you haven't really baked today, I am posting something that I am baking next week. These biscuits are amazingly light and tender and SO convenient. You make them up in bulk, freeze them and then use only the amount you need. I think you can buy something similar to this in the freezer section, but this is much cheaper and my middle name (this week) is Cheap.

Freezer Biscuits:
5 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup Crisco
2 cups milk
Combine first 5 ingredients. Cut Crisco into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or fork (or a food processor).  Combine buttermilk and flour mixture, stirring slowly until well combined. Dump onto a well floured counter and knead for 2 minutes or until dough is not sticky and feels elastic. Roll out to 1/2 - 1/4 inch thick. Cut out circles with a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Place on a cookie sheet and into the freezer. When frozen, place into a ziplock bag.

To use, let rise in greased pan with biscuits touching each other. Dot each biscuit with butter and bake 425 degrees until tops are golden brown (about 10-12 minutes)

Your biscuit recipe sounds really good. I'll have to try it soon. I am so sorry that I forgot to link my recipe to you! I will be more careful next time! :)

This is great. We need cheap in this economy! Thanks for posting it (and hosting, too.) :-)

I love that they can be made ahead and put in the freezer since I do most of my cooking ahead of time this would work great for me. Thanks!

Oh wow, these sound really good, and a timesaver and money saver!! I'll have to try them. Heck, if I can make dog biscuits, I can make these. :)
