Homemade biscuits are a welcome addition to any meal. However, not many people are up for whipping up a fresh batch each and every time the desire for biscuits arises. By following a few simple steps, a homemade batch of biscuits can be frozen and enjoyed anytime.
Things You'll Need
- Homemade biscuit dough or freshly baked homemade biscuits
- Baking sheet
- Wax paper or aluminum foil
- Freezer-safe storage bags
Freezing Uncooked Biscuits
Roll out the biscuit dough. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the desired amount of biscuits to be frozen.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or wax paper. Place the uncooked biscuits on the baking sheet, leaving a small amount of space between each one. The biscuits will not expand, so the space will not have to be as great as for those to be cooked.
Place the baking sheet into the freezer. The biscuits must remain in the freezer for this step until they are frozen solid. Time permitting, overnight is best.
Remove the baking sheet from the freezer. Place the frozen biscuits in freezer-safe storage bags. Store the biscuits in the freezer.
Thaw out the biscuits when you are ready for cooking.
Freezing Cooked Biscuits
Prepare your homemade biscuit dough. Cook the entire batch of biscuits. Allow the cooked biscuits to cool completely on a wire rack before proceeding.
Wrap each biscuit individually in aluminum foil to preserve the flavor and freshness. Place the wrapped biscuits in freezer safe storage bags. Label the bags with the date the biscuits were baked. Store the bags in the freezer.
Remove the desired amount of biscuits from the freezer and allow them to thaw before putting them in the oven at a reheat setting.
