    Make a batch of these biscuits and freeze them until you are ready to bake. Cost less and taste better than the canned. I found this at

    1. 1
      In a large mixing bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
    2. 2
      Add shortening and cut with a fork or pastry cutter. Do not overmix. The shortening should resemble small peas.
    3. 3
      Stir in buttermilk until the dough is soft. Knead dough 10 to 12 times only.
    4. 4
      On a floured surface roll the dough 1" thick. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass. Use a larger circle for big size biscuits.
    5. 5
      To freeze, place the biscuit dough on a large pan lined with waxed or parchment paper and freeze overnight. Once frozen, place in a large freezer bag and store in freezer until ready to cook.
    6. 6
      To cook, take out the desired number of biscuits and place on a lightly greased baking sheet or pan. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown.

      I have made these several times with good outcomes, but finally decided to tweak this a little. Try adding 3 Tablespoons of sugar and 3/4 to 1 teaspoon of baking soda. This will produce biscuits that rise higher and are somewhat lighter than in the original recipe.

      I made these biscuits tonight, and they are WAY too salty. If I make them again I will cut down the salt, at least by half.

      This is a great recipe! I've been trying to incorporate more whole grains, so I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, 4 cups of unbleached flour. They turned out well, and we love being able to just pull some out of the freezer to bake.
