Kathy requested the recipe I use for freezer biscuits, I thought I had blogged about it before but I can't find it so here it is. I have made many batches of these.
Freezer biscuits - I either double or triple it when I make it
3 C flour
1 T baking powder
1 T sugar
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
mix all these dry ingredients together. Then cut it
2/3 C shortening.
I use a pastry blender.
When it looks like fine crumbs, stir it
1 C buttermilk -
( I usually use regular or powdered milk mixed with a little lemon juice)
Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly until it comes together.
Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into biscuits.
Now, you can bake them in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
Or, you can freeze them. I put them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and freeze until solid.
Then I bag them up in a freezer bag, squeezing out as much air as possible.
To bake, preheat oven to 400. Bake biscuits 20-25 minutes until golden.
When I just bake a few frozen biscuits, I use our little toaster oven and it works great.
Much thriftier than heating up the big oven.
|remember that I dug up a few of the boxwood bushes?|
Well, the lady and her teenage son did come and dug up and hauled off the rest.

This is what it looked like Friday
but I think after all the rain Friday and Saturday night, it is probably laying down now.
|the wind blew the lid off the turtle sandbox|
Can you see the box and the lid are both full of water
and this is just from Friday night's rain!
|Jeff assembling our first ever composter|
it was a big job even for a very experience mechanic.
I think it would be very difficult for someone with no tool experience.
I am just hoping it makes lots of good compost.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
24 This is the day the LORD has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
