Simple Freezer-Friendly Biscuits
Since yeast is hard to find right now, I’ve been trying to do more baking with baking powder. These biscuits come from Budget Bytes (www.budgetbytes.com), which is overflowing with inexpensive, quarantine-friendly recipes. Check it out!
2.5 cups of flour
1 tsp of salt
1 Tbsp of sugar
4 tsps of baking powder
1 pint of heavy cream
2 Tbsps of melted butter (optional)
Put flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.
2. Add heavy cream and mix into dough.
3. Spoon dough onto a floured cutting board, sprinkle dough and hands with flour, then knead gently a few times.
4. Flatten with hands to a 6’’ by 8” rectangle. Then fold in half, and flatten to the same size again. Do this a few times to create layers in the biscuits.
5. Cut into twelve pieces with a floured knife.
6. Put a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and add biscuits a little apart. (This is also the part where you can freeze dough for later. Once the dough is placed on the parchment paper, the paper and dough can be placed in a freezer bag for use at a later date. Dough lasts 3-4 months this way if stored properly.)
7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees. If baking fresh dough, cook for 16-20 minutes. If baking from frozen, defrost dough only while oven is heating, then cook for 18-22 minutes. Biscuits are finished when the tops are golden brown. Brush with melted butter if desired.
