There is a product in the freezer section that comes in a blue bag with a little dough man on the front. They are ready to bake biscuits. I have tried them and they are mighty convenient for a quick breakfast or dinner. A bag of ten biscuits retails for approximately $3.09. Do you know how much cheaper it is to make your own??? The following recipe made two bags of 13 biscuits each...for a lot less than retail.
5 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup shortening, butter or a combo of both
1 envelope yeast
2 Tbsp warm water
2 cups buttermilk
In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cut the shortening into the flour with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse sand. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add both the yeast water and the buttermilk to the flour. Knead the dough until it is no longer sticky and feels elastic. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles and lay on a cookie sheet.
Freeze until hard and then place into a freezer container. To use: bake at a preheated 425 degrees until tops are light brown...about 15 minutes. You can bake these either frozen or unfrozen. If you let them thaw, they will rise a bit because of the yeast.
