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.
