A friend gave me a recipe for this freeze and bake biscuit dough and it is amazing. I tweaked it a bit, and you can easily add other bits like dried fruit, nuts, seeds, chocolate and even spices. This is the basic recipe I use now. I love it because we don’t buy biscuits, but sometimes it is nice to have a little something, especially for last minute guests as you can slice a few and have them ready in 15 minutes!
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup crushed/ground almonds
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
Spices like cinnamon, ground ginger & clove
Bits of chocolate
Chopped dried fruit
Chopped nuts or seeds
Roll into a sausage/snake and place in the freezer. You can wrap in wax cloth if you have it, or you could reuse a piece of plastic from some food packaging, then you can keep reusing it for this purpose. Or you can even cut in two and place in a plastic tub.
When you are ready to bake them, take out the freezer and slice into rounds just over 1/2 centimetre thick. Place on a baking tray and bake at 180deg for 12 – 15 minutes till slightly golden. Remember they will harden as they cool. Don’t be like me the first time I made biscuits and keep baking them till they are rock hard.
That sounds wonderful – my freezer is one of my best friends so I’ll add something else to it’s tummy! And I’ll pass the recipe on to my family. Always good to have a plan B! Go well 🙂
Thanks Sandi, hope you enjoy it.
