I think it was probably a summer or two ago when we found the blue bag of buttermilk biscuits in the freezer section of our local wholesale club. I bought them thinking, they must be better than the biscuits from a can. And flavor-wise, I’d say they were. But then I realized they were kind of expensive and probably not all that great for us. But we do love a good buttermilk biscuit. And you know I do love having my freezer filled with quick and easy breakfasts for busy mornings.
So when I saw these Freezer Biscuits pinned on Pinterest, I knew I must try them right away! Our first batch disappeared in a flash it seems. But I wanted to make them healthier so I substituted half the flour with whole wheat flour. Success! While they do have a slight whole wheat flavor, my family has gobbled them up. I think I’ve made two more batches in just the last few weeks. I know these call for shortening or butter and I’ve been using shortening. My experience with baking biscuits is that shortening helps with the fluffy layers. But I do plan to experiment with the butter sometime soon. I’ll keep ou posted on the results. These are just so yummy AND easy, I couldn’t wait to share. Oh! And I did the math on all the ingredients and making them from scratch is exactly HALF of what the pre-made version costs. I hope you enjoy them too!
