Red Velvet Biscuits baking Tips:

When I have the time, I like to stick the biscuits in the fridge. This cold butter gives the biscuits an excellent flaky texture and height during baking.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: After biscuits cools off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the freezer for 5 months max. Thaw 12-24 hours before using.

Fridge: After biscuits cools off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes or place in a toaster.

You can use another milk other than buttermilk but you will be sacrificing flavor.

When making the biscuits you may want to use gloves so your hands will not get stained from the red dye or you will be using vinegar to wash the red dye off.
