Update: I tried an experiment to see if you could freeze these biscuits the way you could freeze regular Angel Biscuits. I made up a batch, but removed 3 biscuits and froze them. I thawed them (covered) on my counter for about 45 minutes, then cooked them in my toaster oven. They were nice on the inside but the crust came out a bit on the crunchy side. Would I freeze them! August 8, 2006 These biscuits were wonderful and got great raves from family that were visiting. I omitted the extra butter as I found that it wasn't needed. I felt that it was a little light on the salt, so I upped it to 1 tsp. As the family was here for 2 weeks, I made these often! I made these up in advance, put them in the fridge until needed... brought them to room temperature, then baked them. My kitchen smelt wonderful! Much appreciated, Donna!!
