So I am doing this biscuit experiment - freezing already baked biscuits to be reheated and freezing biscuits that have not yet been baked. Yesterday I heated and baked to see which method I liked best.
I heated two previously baked biscuits in the microwave. I set it on 'defrost' for a couple of minutes and then on 'high' for 30 seconds. They came out tasting like they had been microwaved and were a bit tough. It was my least favorite method.
The next two biscuits I popped into a 350 degree toaster oven for about three minutes. They were heated through and tasted like a biscuit should.
I cranked up the toaster oven to 400 degrees and pre-heated the regular oven to the same temp. Two of the raw biscuits, still frozen, went into each. They baked for about 15 minutes. Times will vary with different ovens. All four biscuits didn't raise as much as biscuits baked fresh, but they all tasted good.
I like the idea of having ready to bake biscuits in the freezer, but I think I will go with freezing baked biscuits. For me, living alone, one batch of biscuits is good for about three meals. If I just freeze the leftovers whenever I make biscuits, it won't take too long until I have I nice stash of them frozen, ready to heat in my toaster oven or regular oven whenever I want biscuits but don't want to mess around stirring them up from scratch.
And thus endeth the great biscuit caper. :)
