Refrigerator biscuits are made from a stiff dough that is refrigerated to become stiffer. The dough is typically shaped into logs which are sliced into rounds before baking.
This treat is easy to make and can be prepared the night before. Bake fresh when needed and can be easily doubled without re-adjusting ingredients.
