Freezing Homemade Biscuits

A while back I posted my recipe and a step by step tutorial of how to make Homemade Biscuits.  There are several reasons why I like to make my own.  It saves money.  They taste better.  I know what ingredients are used. 
Here is an easy way to freeze your own homemade biscuits. 
First, after you have cut your biscuits out place them on a cookie sheet (not touching) and place the cookie sheet in the freezer.  I usually leave mine about 30 minutes or so until they are frozen pretty good. 

Take them out of the freezer and stack them up.  Because you have flash frozen them already they won't stick together and later when you want to bake them they will pull apart easy.

I usually stack 8 - 10 and you can wrap them in saran wrap or wax paper for an extra layer of protection if you would like.  I do sometimes do this especially if I am hoping to keep them for a while. 

Simply place them in your freezer bag, squeeze out all of the air and label them if you like.

When it is time to bake your frozen biscuits I find it best to take them from the freezer, pull them apart and place them on your baking sheet and allow them to sit and thaw for about 30 minutes before placing them in the oven.  This helps them to puff up and raise like they would if they were fresh. 

I bake my Frozen biscuits on about 375 for 18 minutes or until golden brown on top.  If you are trying this for the first time I would recommend that you set your timer for about 12 minutes and check them adding additional time if needed.  Ovens all bake differently and yours may take more or less time than mine. 

Have you ever frozen biscuits?  Are you planning to give this a try?


  1. I freeze biscuits the same way but I just throw them all in a Ziploc and take out 2 at a time. We are empty nesters and this has saved alot of leftover stale biscuits from the trash.

  2. I forgot I had book~marked your biscuits to try! We love biscuits, especially in the winter with soup. I'm going to have to make them this week!

  3. I've made my own biscuits most of my life, but never thought of freezing them. This would be especially helpful now that we are empty-nesters and can't eat a whole batch anyway. Thanks for the idea.

    1. p.s. would love to have you link up some of your posts to Bible Love Notes new blog party T.G.I.F.

  4. Thanks so much for this! Now I just need to make the effort to make them and it will help save money :)

  5. This is awesome! Why did I never think of it? This would be super helpful on those busy mornings when my husband gives me puppy dog eyes wanting biscuits and gravy! Thank you! And thank you for linking up with me last week at Walking Redeemed!
