Sure you can buy canned or frozen biscuits but they just don't taste the same as homemade. In the mornings I usually don't want cereal, I tend to want a homemade biscuit and an egg. Yes, just one biscuit. How could I achieve that, I asked myself. I scoured Pinterest and found an answer. Perfect for that one or a couple of biscuits type of breakfast like before you send your kids off to school and you're dog tired. 

Every once in a while, make a batch or two of homemade biscuit dough. 
You can use any recipe. Here's my vintage one I love. 

makes approx 17 biscuits
3 C flour
4 t baking powder
1 T sugar
1 t salt
3/4 t cream of tartar
3/4 C butter
1 C milk

In large bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender (you can also do this step in a food processor), cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. make a well in center and add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead by folding and gently pressing until it holds together. Pat or lightly roll out until 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit or round cookie cutter. Cut out as many as possible from a single rolling because a second rolling & additional flour will result in biscuits that are a little tougher than the first batch. Lay parchment paper out on a cookie sheet. Place biscuits on parchment paper so that they are not touching and flash freeze for an hour in the freezer. Remove and place in a Ziploc freezer bag. Use within 6 months. Place however many you want on a lightly greased baking sheet (put the others you don't want back into the freezer) and bake frozen biscuit(s) for 10-12 minutes in a preheated oven of 450°.
