Freezer Biscuits:

  • 8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 TBSP baking powder

  • 4 sticks unsalted butter cold
  • 1 quart buttermilk 4 cups


How to Make Freezer Biscuits:

  • Combine the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Grate in cold butter.
  • Stir in the buttermilk adding more milk if too dry. (Dough should be moistened and tacky.)
  • Transfer dough onto a well-floured surface and pat dough down to a 16-inch rectangle. Fold the dough into a letter twice, patting down to a 1" thickness.

    Cut out 3" circles and place biscuits and scraps onto a well-floured tray. Freeze solid. Store biscuits in a gallon-sized zip-loc bag and scraps in a quart size bag. To use: bake frozen biscuits 25-30 minutes at 400°F or until golden.


Note: Add an additional 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup of milk or water to make a tacky biscuit dough in step 1. 
  • Grating Tip: Dredge butter into the flour every so often to prevent the butter from sticking to your hands when grating. 
  • Omit 2 teaspoons of salt if using salted butter.
  • Freeze biscuit scraps separately. 
  • Freezer Biscuits are best when baked within 3 months.
