Biscuit heresy?

Monch | Apr 16, 2011 11:15 AM

I have been working on my acumen for making baking powder biscuits and have found a recipe that works.

Today I got a bug to make a batch and decided to try a shortcut:
- Into the Cuisinart went the dry ingredients, for a pulse or two
- Then in went the frozen shortening (butter-flavored Crisco)
- Pulse a few times to get to "crumbly" consistency

While I had everything out, I decided to mix up a SECOND batch to the point I end, above. Threw all that into a zipbag and threw THAT into the freezer for future reference.

Will the freezing of my "homemade Bisquick" cause me any issues, up to and including, being drummed out of the Biscuit Maker's Guild? Same question for use of the food processor?

I took the FIRST batch to completion, with buttermilk, and the completed product is darn tasty.
