Perfect Freezer Biscuits

by Laura

Now that I have shared some yummy soup recipes with you, why not pair them with a delicious biscuit!  I saw a recipe for perfect freezer biscuits over on The Sisters Cafe a while ago.  Then I saw Leigh Anne at Your Home Based Mom tried them out and loved them.  Her post reminded me I need to try them.  Well, I finally got around to trying them and they are so good!

The original recipe is made by hand.  However, I followed Leigh Anne’s lead and used my food processor.  I also used light sour cream to help reduce the calories for you.  The great thing about this recipe is it makes 16-20 biscuits.  

You can bake what you want.  Then put the rest on a baking sheet in your freezer. Just give the biscuits a couple of hours on the sheet.  Then, pop these perfect freezer biscuits in a freezer bag and save for another night. You can just pull them out as you need them.

Hey, don’t worry if you don’t have a biscuit cutter.  You can use a drinking glass in it’s place.  You can also roll the dough into a rectangle and cut them in to square biscuits using your pizza cutter.

Perfect Freezer Biscuits


  • Author: Laura
  • Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 1620 biscuits 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 (16 oz) container or 2 cups reduced fat sour cream
  • 35 tsp water, if needed
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter (need when baking the entire batch of biscuits)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, add all of the dry ingredients and pulse a few times to get the ingredients mixed together.
  2. Add butter to the food processor and pulse until butter is cut into pea sized pieces.  This will take a few minutes.
  3. Next, add the sour cream and and pulse until a soft dough is formed.  If the dough is too dry you can add some water.  (I didn’t need any water)
  4. Remove dough from the food processor and knead a couple of times on a lightly floured surface.
  5. Roll out to 1 inch in thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or drinking glass to cut out into round biscuit shapes or cut into squares using a pizza cutter.
  6. If freezing, place biscuits on a cookie sheet for about 1-2 hours, until solid. After they are frozen, place in a freezer bag to store. Use as needed.
  7. To bake biscuits whether fresh or frozen: Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and brush with melted butter. Bake at 400 for 15-17 minutes or until top is golden. Halfway through the baking process, brush the tops of the biscuits again with melted butter.  Makes 16-20 biscuits.

the recipe calls for 1/2 tsp soda…….I assume that should be baking soda not regular soda

Rolling to 1 inch thick seems … too thick. Is that a typo?

You might try buying a new can of baking powder if yours is more than six months old. It loses it’s umph pretty quickly.

I live in NC and as much as I love to cook, I have never been able to make a really good biscuit. These were wonderful! I love being able to mix them in the food processor. I topped them off with homemade peach jelly. Yum!!!

Yes, a good old pastry blender would work just fine if you don’t have a food processor

Yes, all purpose flour. You could give the self rising flour a try however, with self rising flour it usually has 1 1/2 tsp baking powder w/ 1/2 tsp salt for each cup of flour. That would more than this recipe calls for and it wouldn’t have the soda.

Since you’re using baking powder and soda, I’m assuming you’re using all-purpose flour, correct? If so, can these be made with self-rising flour (leaving out the baking powder, soda & salt)? Thanks!
