Pro Tips

  • If you would like to batch cook these for the week, make sure you cool them thoroughly before you freeze them. This way each biscuit freezes on its own.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use regular flour?

  • You can definitely try with a Cup for Cup flour equivalent. I have not tested but the flour is being used as a binder in this recipe so it should work out great.
