As good as Pop Biscuits!

Fresh or Freezer Biscuits

I have always known that biscuits are really not that

difficult to make from scratch and that they are quite fast and

cheap too. Therefore, I am ashamed to admit that I have

relied on what my family calls “pop” biscuits for the

past 16 years of my marriage. They too are fast,

have multi-uses and in the past, were cheap.

In the most recent, they have climbed in price and as I

try to cut the preservatives, and pre-prepared foods out

of my family’s diet, my pop biscuit habit needed to be addressed.

I was attracted to this recipe due to the fact that it was freezable!

Ahh the convenience  of of the pop biscuit but even better

because I can make as many or as little as I would like.


Freezer Biscuits

4 C flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 C butter
16oz sour cream
3-5 tsp water

Melted butter

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl or your food processor. 

If using food processor, pulse until butter is small and well blended pieces or 

cut in butter by hand using a pastry cutter. 

Add in the sour cream and water and mix well. 

Pulse again until well mixed.  Add more water if it is too dry (just a little at a time.) 

Knead a few times on the counter and roll out to 1 inch thick

Use a biscuit cutter to cut or dip a drinking glass into flour and cut.

*** See below for some fun ideas other than traditional round biscuits***

freezer biscuits

Freeze individually on a cookie sheet.

After they are frozen, place in a freezer bag to store.

Use as needed.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 for 15-17 minutes or until top is golden.


Twice during the baking process baste the tops of the biscuits with melted butter.

I found this recipe on Your Homebased Mom and on The Sisters Café

I love baking with my three year old Son. He is really learning a lot and

I am finding there are very few meals he can not help me in some way.

The following idea came directly from one of his suggestions.

*Valentines Day Tip: Biscuits and gravy make a great breakfast in bed idea!

My son and I were making up some biscuits and he asked if we could make

stars like we did at Christmas time with our sugar cookies. Then

the thought occurred to me ! Hearts! Hearts for a Valentines day

breakfast. You can try blueberries, strawberries and cream on top

of the stars instead of gravy for the 4th of July!

I think they turned out great and my son loved them too!

**** Opinion on Freezer version. I did not find that I got the same beautiful

results from my frozen biscuits as I did when they were fresh.

The taste was there, but not the fluffiness. So what I suggest is

letting your biscuits thaw first before baking!

  1. SO cute. I love the heart shaped ones. I will have to try it :)

    1. Thanks Nikkie for leaving a comment! You can up the nutrients by replacing one cup of white flour with one cup of wheat and from what I hear they still come out fluffy!
