A couple times a month I’ll pre-make a bunch of food for freezing for days when I simply don’t have the time or inspiration to create something great from scratch. I always have these handy. Pull them out when you get home from work, or a little before dinner, so they thaw before cooking.
- 4 cups flour
- 2 Tbsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup butter
- 1 3/4 cup milk
1. In a kitchaid (or by hand if you’re looking for an awesome arm workout), mix together all of the dry ingredients and butter until crumbly. Slowly add the milk until a smooth dough forms.
2. Roll out dough until roughly 1/2 thick and cut into rounds. (I use a small glass to get the right shape/size.
3. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least an hour. Once frozen, they’re easier to store. I keep a couple gallon-sized bags of biscuits in my deep freezer.
4. To Bake: pull biscuits out and let thaw at room temperature while you cook the rest of the meal. Bake at 450 for 8-12 minutes.
