Default Frozen Biscuit Dough

[Biscuits as in bread biscuits, not sweet biscuits for our British/New
Zealand/Aussie friends.]

I heard a number of people talking about how great frozen biscuit dough is,
and how easy to simply pop into the oven on a baking sheet. So I bought
some and tried it. I preheated the oven and baked as directed. I promise,
you would *not* have wanted me to fling one of those biscuits at you unless
you were wearing a padding and a face-mask! Hockey-puck city.

If I'm going the "quick biscuit" route, I'd rather buy a roll of Pillsbury
biscuit dough. Or make them from Bisquick. Anyone else have better luck
with these?

I do like frozen bread dough which I find at the supermarket under the brand
name of Rich's. Tastes almost like Grandma's

I don't prefer Frozen Biscuits - but having been served them I've never
had a problem with them being too hard or inedible... They actually
*are* a comparable substitute for fresh biscuits as opposed to "canned
biscuits" which is an entirely different beast altogether...

I've had bad luck with frozen biscuits -- they turn out better than mine.
;-) I'm not sure which ones though, Wife usually buys them, and some brands
or varieties are much better than others. Seems like one package turned
out hard and dry, but all the others were perfect.

Best regards,
Bob

This brand is Mary B's Buttermilk Biscuits. But according to the folks at
the little store down the street, they started using them rather than making
biscuits from scratch for their breakfast buffet. Cuts the prep time down.
They brush the baking pan with butter and then lay the biscuits down. When
the biscuits come out of the oven they are risen and fluffy looking. Then
they brush the top with melted butter. Sorry, but when I tried them they
just came out like hard lumps of dough. Besides, their biscuits aren't
nearly as good now that they are using the frozen dough stuff.

I'm not advocating canned biscuits. I much prefer the following recipe when
I have the time:

1/3 c. shortening
1-3/4 c. all purpose flour
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. milk or buttermilk

Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl then stir in milk or
buttermilk until you have a thick dough. Pat your hands with flour and
flour your counter. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface and knead
briefly. Roll out the dough and cut with a floured drinking glass or
biscuit cutter, about 3 inches in diameter. Place on a lightly greased
baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and brush
melted butter over the tops.

Try the Pillsbury frozen biscuits. They outclass all other frozen biscuits.
And they're FAR superior to any "roll of dough" or canned biscuits, which to me
taste like plastic.
For a mix, try BixMix if you can find it, Martha White mix as a second choice.
They're both available in little packets..
Nothing's as good as homemade.

May have been old. I lost a bag in the freezer for nearly a year and
rediscovered them last month.

If they'd been cookies I'd have said they maybe rose a bit much.

As biscuits I'd have said they were trying to disguise themselves as
crackers.

We've gone through several brands and the ones we get from the
SuperWalmart are the best. One of the few things I actually prefer
from there.

I like them mostly because they're quick and I can bake only the
number I want instead of having to bake an entire tube.

I agree... The only ones I've tried were from a SuperWalmart and they
are the next best thing to home made biscuits. I can bake a mean
biscuit, but these are really convenient and no one would ever mistake
them for those out of a tube.

Uh, further on biscuits... When I make cornbread dressing, I also mix in
some crumbled day-old biscuits instead of using bread or breadcrumbs.
It's a much better texture and flavor. My grandmother and mother always
did this and we prefer it.

The Pillsbury frozen biscuits (not in a roll) have been very good - flaky
and soft. Had good luck with their dinner rolls as well. I bake them up in
a toaster oven. Like that I can make only 1 or 2 at a time.

I also love the Pillsbury Home Baked Classics. They come inButter,
Buttermilk, Cheddar and Southern. I can't decide which I like best but
I'll never make another one from scratch and I'm kinda a biscuit snob!!
