Biscuits are the exception to the rule that cooked frozen goods are better than uncooked ones. Baked biscuits do freeze well, but they store equally well in tins, so there is no advantage in taking valuable freezer space for them. The most useful and time-saving way of preparing biscuits is to freeze batches of any favourite recipe in cylinder shapes, wrapped in freezer paper, polythene or foil. The dough will be all the better for having been frozen, giving light crisp biscuits. To use, leave in freezer wrapping in the refrigerator for 45 minutes until just beginning to soften, then cut into slices and bake.
