freezing Angel biscuits

ritabo

when making Angel biscuits at what point do you freeze them? After baking; partially baked, etc. I am trying to find a recipe that I can make the biscuits and freeze them so that my husband can just take a couple out of the freezer and pop them into the toaster oven. thanks, Rita

I absolutely love this recipe: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/angel-biscuits-recipe

You store them in the freezer before you bake them. When you want a couple, you can just take them out of the freezer and put them right in the oven until they are cooked through. I'm not sure how they would come out in a toaster oven, but putting them in the regular oven for about 10 minutes is certainly easy enough.

RITABO:
Good afternoon. I am not familiar with partiall baking.So I canot advise on that subject. You can freeze un~baked & as well as afterbaking.
Which one do you think is more advantage for your husband. You then can post the type of bake you think is best & we then can suggest to you how to do the proper proceedure.

Till then enjoy the day.

to partially bake the biscuits-I wouldn't bake them until they were ready to eat right then. I would just bake them until they were ready to brown. I think he would rather finish baking them rather than bake them the whole time. Would I freeze them right after making them or after they had baked for a few minutes. also, would they need to be thawed before baking or put right into the oven? thanks

If you look at the recipe I linked to above, it specifically says at what point you should freeze them. In that recipe, you freeze them after you have made the dough and cut out the biscuits. You do not have to thaw them first. They bake for ~15 minutes.

I'm not sure about partial baking. My guess is that they would hold up better if you either don't bake them at all before freezing (like the recipe above) or if you bake them through all the way first.
