  • 8 cups flour
  • 16 oz frozen butter
  • 8 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3.5 tsp salt
  • 3 cups buttermilk


  • Sift the flour along with the baking soda and baking powder. Add the salt and gently mix to incorporate well. Place your frozen butter that has been cubed in your food processor along with some flour mixture you just made. Once your butter is all chopped up mix it with your flour and create a well in the center.
  • Add your buttermilk and gently incorporate your flour until it just barely starts coming together. Place the dough ball on your counter and flatten it out. Fold the dough onto itself to create the layers (watch the video) and repeat this process several times.
  • Finally roll the dough out to whatever thickness you desire (I like 1 inch thick biscuits). Place precut raw biscuits in the freezer to firm up and once frozen you can package them up however you like.

To Cook Biscuits

  • To cook simply preheat the oven to 425F and place frozen biscuit on pre-greased baking tray. Brush a little butter atop the frozen biscuit and bake for 25 minutes till golden brown.
