Refrigerator Biscuits

Galettes au Frigidaire

Refrigerator biscuits are made from dough that is refrigerated.  The dough is typically shaped into logs which are then sliced into biscuits before baking.

This is a nice and simple treat which can be prepared the night before.  Bake fresh when needed. This recipe can be easily doubled without re-adjusting ingredients.


  • ½ cup (180 ml) of butter
  • ½ cup (180 ml) of shortening
