Freeze 'n' Bake Biscuits

Recipe Ingredients

6 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup dry milk powder

1/4 cup baking powder

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

2 cups shortening

1 1/2 cups water

Method

In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients together until well combined. Cut shortening into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using fork, stir in water until mixture is just moistened.

Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Turn dough onto well-floured surface. Lightly flour your hands and knead dough 8 to 10 times until smooth. Pat out dough about 3/4-inch thick. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares or cut with biscuit cutter, without twisting biscuit cutter. Place about 1/2-inch apart on baking sheet and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.

Makes about 5 dozen.

To freeze, prepare but do not bake. Freeze, then place in plastic bags. Remove biscuits as needed and bake frozen for 30 to 35 minutes. Ingredients may be mixed, stored in container, water added and baked as needed.
