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.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Stir in the cream until a dough forms, about 30 seconds. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gather into a ball. Knead the dough briefly until smooth, about 1 minute.
Pat the dough into a 3/4-inch thick circle. Cut out biscuits using a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter. Cut out as many as possible. Place them on the prepared baking sheet. Gather scraps of dough a knead together briefly, then pat out again and cut more biscuits. Repeat again.
Preparing For the Freezer:
Wrap the baking sheet tightly with greased plastic and freeze the biscuits for about 6 hours. Transfer frozen biscuits to a large resealable bag and freeze for up to 1 month.
Prepare after Freezing:
Do not thaw biscuits. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450. Place frozen biscuits on a lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake one baking sheet at a time, until puffed and golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
To Serve Without Freezing:
Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450. Bake one sheet at a time, for about 15-20 minutes.
