First things first. Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Butter go in the food processor.

Pulse it until crumbly. Then slowly pulse in the milk just until the dough comes together. DON’T OVER MIX!  If you do over mix your biscuits will be more dense and less fluffy.

Roll out your dough about 1/2 inch thick and use a round cookie cutter for your biscuits. Now, if you don’t want to take the time to roll and re-roll the dough. You can just use a knife and cut the dough into Even 2 inch squares. Then you are done in one swipe. You will just have square biscuits….they taste just as good as the round ones 😉

    I am going to try making these…they look so fluffy and yummy! I love that they can be frozen and pulled out when needed. Thank you so much!

    I’m so excited to try this! And they take up so much less room than those bags of premade/frozen rolls and biscuits. Do you think wheat flour could be used (1/2 white 1/2 wheat)?

    Book marking this recipe. It looks so easy -I hope it is. Breakfast for Saturday. Not much of a baker. The only biscuits I have ever made are drop biscuits from a mix.

    Have you tried these with GF flour? I am GF but LOVE LOVE LOVE biscuits. I have Pamelas bread mix and her pancake mix so maybe I will try using one of those :)

  5. Linda says

    How long can these keep in the freezer? What is the longest that you have had them in the freezer before using them?

    Just made these to smother in chicken, cream of chicken, and veggies. Amazingly tasty!
    Can’t wait to eat these with my sausage gravy!

    Oh my heavens! These biscuits look divine (deviliciously divine, that is).
    I appreciate the photos coordinated with the baking steps, makes it so much easier to follow.
    I am a biscuit fan big time, and like to keep my additions to them simple:
    honey and butter, or jam and peanut butter, or Nutella and bananas … you know, simple :)

    These tasted delicious and were super soft, but they didnt puff up like a biscut ought to. Any idea what might have went wrong?
