Make simple cream biscuits now and freeze them for later!
What a wonderful idea! Make a bunch of biscuits when you have some time, freeze them, then simply pop some in the oven when you want fresh homemade biscuits. Love it! And yes, they taste wonderful too!
If you want your biscuits to rise properly when baking, it helps to cut them out with a sharp edge. So, a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or knife are some possible options.
Note: I must have made mine somewhere between 1/2- and 3/4-inch, rather than 3/4-inch thick. They still turned out great, but I ended up with 39 instead of the estimated 24. I’m ok with that. I also needed to watch the cooking time more closely. Thinner biscuits cook more quickly.
