Homemade Freezer Biscuits

Since switching from eating already prepared food and snacks bought from the store, to cooking from scratch, we have discovered many amazing recipes. The children have also began to expect amazing home-cooked meals every time. Which is good! Right? They should crave real food and not a box of pop-tarts. But I don’t always have time to prepare a meal from scratch. Those are the times I rely on freezer cooking to save the day.

I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes there is absolutely nothing on my schedule! I am not the type of person that enjoys being bored. Not at all. So on those days I usually end up preparing a couple of meals for the freezer to spare the extra stress later.

These biscuits are my favorite freezer food. Β Being Southerners we love our biscuits and gravy. Yup. Mmmmm.

So I love having these already prepped for busy mornings when we woke up late (so what if that’s every morning?), can’t find anything and have 20 minutes to get out of the house.

Having things prepped in the freezer allows us to still have a family breakfast. (Which is pretty stinkin’ awesome.)

These homemade freezer biscuits smell, taste, and look almost exactly like the kind you can get from the store…but better! They’re so easy to make and they’ve quickly become a staple in my house. I like to make a few batches at a time (maybe 3-4) so that I can pull out biscuits anytime I need a quick and easy side dish.

Yield: 18

Homemade Freezer Biscuits


  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cup milk


  • Mix dry ingredients together. Add in the butter and mix until crumbly. (If you have one, you can use a KitchenAid or food processor to save time and effort). Add in the milk and mix until a ball forms.
  • Roll out onto a floured surface and cut into biscuits.
  • Freeze on a cookie sheet for 1-2 hours. Then remove and place in a airtight freezer bag.
  • To cook it, pull the desired number of biscuits out and let thaw for 30 minutes to an hour (I move them to the fridge the night before). Bake at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes.

  21. This is a fantastic idea! I’m going to do this for sure. I was raised by two southerners, so I too love the biscuits but don’t have the a lot of time to make them. This would be great! I also don’t eat very much processed food, so no canned biscuits.

  43. One of my favorites and who wouldnt want to have fresh baked biscuits ready and waiting to just pop in the oven? Love it gonna do this,Thanks!

  44. This is awesome!! I really need to get myself organized with freezer meals! Thanks for sharing this with us at Foodie Fridays…great timing for me!

  45. Great idea! What happens if you don’t thaw them out first?

    • Hi KC!

      If you don’t thaw them first they begin to cook in the oven before they thaw. This makes the biscuit stay small, and it will also take longer to cook. If you don’t have time to thaw them overnight, you could put them in the oven for 3-4 minutes and take them out onto the counter for about 5 minutes and they should be thawed enough to bake at this point. The biscuits in the pictures actually had this thawing process, so as you can see it turns out great!

      Hope this helped!

  53. I clicked on a beef stew recipe post at Inspire Me Monday because I making beef stew right now in the slow cooker for dinner tonight, and I am clicking here because I made homemade biscuits for breakfast this morning. I was so glad to begin this tradition or hone this skill or whatever it may be properly called, again in my home. My grandmother made homemade biscuits probably everyday of her adult life–two or three times a day. But then the skill got lost during my mom’s generation. She tried to make biscuits so many times and they NEVER came out right, so we started to just think it was an “old time” thing that is just too difficult to continue. But I have since taken on the challenge and revived making biscuits in my home. And I am determine to start my girls out on it now at 9 and 6 so this doesn’t happen again.

    I was in the store one day to buy some frozen biscuits and had an epiphany…I have flour, baking powder, salt and milk at home right now. Why would I spend 4-5 dollars for a bag of biscuits…my grandmother would NEVER done that. So I went home and revived a down home money saver that is healthier (no preservatives) and more enjoyable.

    Great post, great recipe (mine similar), and great perspective on preparing meals.


  54. O my I had no idea you can freeze biscuits! I am printing this now to try! Visiting from Inspire Me Monday!

  55. I will have to try this recipe vs the other freezer recipe I have. Time saving for sure.

  62. these look delicious and I love how thick and fluffy they are! How thick do you roll them out? I have made some other freezer biscuits and they were pretty thin after baking.

    Hi Maria, thanks for sharing this recipe! I just found it on Pinterest. I made these last Tuesday and, to my husband’s horror, froze them all. πŸ™‚ We went camping over the weekend and I thought these would be a great addition to bacon & eggs. I thawed a few of them in a pie tin and then placed canning jar lids in a Dutch oven and the pie tin on top of them. We used briquettes to heat the Dutch oven to 450 F and baked them for 12 minutes. I was so happy with how they turned out! Light, flaky, tender and oh so wonderful!!! Hubby LOVED them! These will also be awesome for those weekend mornings he wants homemade biscuits and sausage gravy…yummm. Thanks again for a great recipe that will save me so much frustration!

  67. I made these one day and froze them. Later, I took the biscuits out of the freezer the night before making a few of them and popped them in the oven. The biscuits didn’t rise at all, they looked like little hockey pucks…the dough was only frozen for a couple of days before I tried to make a few of them, so I’m not sure what happened?…

    • Hey! There are a few reasons this could have happened but the ones that come to mind are: 1) you could have used a drinking glass to cut the circles instead of a sharp cookie cutter (which would push the edges of the dough together and not allow it to rise later when baking). 2) You could have had an issue with your butter not being cold enough to start, and not cut into the flour well enough. 3) Your baking powder could have been expired. Baking powder usually has a shelf life of about 9 to 12 months.

      Hope this helps!
      Maria πŸ™‚
