Easy homemade biscuits you can freeze
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (sift twice...I just mix with a fork...don't have a sifter)
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup cold buttermilk
2 Tbs cold buttermilk
Cut butter into cubes and freeze for a few minutes. (my 5yr loved to do this)
While it's freezing stir dry in gredients together in a big bowl. (another good task for a 5yr)
Cut in butter (use 2 knives or your 5yr old like I do;)
Stir in buttermilk with a fork just until dough is formed. (I take over from here ;)
Knead 3 -4 times on floured surface
Pat into rectangle
Use whatever flats your boat as a biscuit cutter. ( I use a juice glass)
Cut as many biscuits as you can and place them on a metal cookie tray...I keep kneading a patting out the ough until there is absolutley nothing left and then I take that last ball and make it a biscuit, too!
Put the tray in the freezer overnight....I don't cover mine or anything...just throw them in there.
The next mornig pop them in a freezer bag and use as needed.
I put melted butter on top of mine before I them at 350 for maybe 15 minutes...just til they look done
...then enjoy the praise as your family eats made from scratch biscuits!
