Flaky and soft homemade biscuits, straight from the freezer.
12 cups flour (you can use any flour you like. I use all-purpose, whole wheat, and different combinations of the 2 depending on what I have.)
8 TBSP baking powder
4 tsp salt
2 cups shortening
6 cups milk
Mix together dry ingredients.
Cut in shortening with pastry cutter, 2 knives, or 2 forks. (I just fork it until it’s incorporated.)
Add milk and stir just ’til combined. Don’t overmix.
Roll out dough on floured surface and cut out biscuits. (I have a very fancy biscuit cutter. It’s called a plastic cup. Use what you have, friends. Use what you have.)
Place biscuits on baking pans and flash freeze. This can take 1-2 hours.
After the biscuits are frozen just place them in a gallon freezer bag and label.
To bake, set biscuits out at least an hour or up to the night before baking.
Bake at 450* for 10 minutes.
When I am doing a freezer cooking day, I use so many pans that I had to flash freeze my biscuits on pizza pans this go round. I figure, as long as it’s flat and can go in the freezer for the flash freezing, it doesn’t matter what kind of pan it is!
