Make Your Own Freezer Biscuits

I like having things on hand that make cooking easier, faster, and more convenient. Then, when we are all busy or I am too tired to get creative with dinner, I have things that are convenience foods without having to go to the store.

Let’s talk biscuits – the warm, fluffy kind that makes any meal feel like a cozy gathering. But who has the time to start from scratch on a busy weekday? Here’s a secret: you can with Freezer Biscuits!

Imagine whipping up a batch when you have a moment to spare, then popping them out of the freezer and into the oven for a quick addition to dinner. No mess, no stress, just pure biscuity bliss.

Freezer Biscuits

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (I also like to substitute this for lard)
  • 2/3 cup milk

The magic begins by mixing the dry ingredients, then cutting in the butter until you’ve got coarse crumbs. Then, stir in the milk to form your dough. Dump it onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly until it is a smooth dough (30 seconds), roll it out into a rectangle that is 1/2 inch thick, cut it into squares (no wasted dough from those round cutters!), and freeze. When you need them, thaw for 10 minutes and then bake in a 425-degree oven for 20 minutes.

These biscuits are more than just a treat; they’re a lifesaver for those days when you are busy, someone extra shows up for the meal, or you just need comfort food.
