How To Properly Store Homemade Baked Biscuits To Keep It Fresh?

Where you store your biscuits is important because it can greatly affect its freshness, texture, and shelf-life. Usually, you can keep it in your freezer, refrigerator, or cupboard.What difference could it make?

Cupboard Or Pantry

If you want to store your biscuits in your cupboard or pantry, you have to put it in an airtight plastic or container first. Remember that yeasts (and other bacteria and fungi) love to thrive in moist areas, plus air can affect the texture and freshness of your biscuits.

Keep in mind, too, that biscuits will only last about 3-5 days in your cupboard.


Refrigerator Or Chiller

Now, if you want your biscuits to last a little longer, you can store it your fridge. Wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place it somewhere dry and colder.

I usually place it further inside so that its internal temperature won’t keep changing every time I open and close the fridge.


Freezer

You can also stock your biscuits in your freezer, but you have to keep in mind that the freezing temperature can dry it out, so you may want to wrap the biscuits individually with aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

What I do is I wrap each of the biscuits twice with foil, then place them all inside a thick heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. It can last for at most 3 months.

Different Effective Methods On How To Reheat Biscuits

Now that you know where and how to store your biscuits, and what you’ll need to reheat it, it is time to learn the different methods you can use.

Method 1: Reheating Biscuits Using a Pan

Biscuits stored in the cupboard or pantry

Biscuits from the pantry are already at room temperature, so all you need to do is take it out of its wrap

  • Since the biscuits are store in the pantry, it is already at room temperature. Take it out of the container and individually wrap it in aluminum foil (this technique will keep the biscuits from burning).
  • Place your pan on the stovetop at medium heat.
  • Let the pan evenly warm up first. Put the biscuits on the pan 1 or 2 at a time.
  • Heat it up for about 30-60 seconds on each side.
  • Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes. (Be extra careful in tearing off the foil).

Biscuits stored in the fridge

  • Take the biscuits out of the fridge. Let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes or until it gets a bit less cold.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the pan over medium heat.
  • Individually wrap the biscuits in foil.
  • Put the biscuits on the pan one at a time. Let it heat up for about 60-90 seconds per side.
  • 5. Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes. (Be extra careful in tearing off the foil)

Biscuits stored in the freezer

  • An hour (or 30 minutes) before heating up the biscuits, take it out of the freezer and let it ‘thaw’ down in the fridge. (Note: It would be best not to thaw the biscuit directly from the freezer to the counter top. Doing so might greatly affect the texture of the biscuits.)
  • Once the biscuit softened, let it thaw more on the counter top for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the pan over medium heat.
  • Put the biscuits on the pan one at a time. Let it heat up for about 60-90 seconds per side. Repeat the process, if needed.
  • Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes. (Be extra careful in tearing off the foil)

Method 2: Reheating Biscuits in the Microwave Oven

Biscuits from the pantry are already at room temperature, so all you need to do is take it out of its wrap

  • Get a face towel and wet it. Squeeze out all the excess water.
  • Wrap the towel entirely around the biscuits. This will keep the biscuits moist. Place this on a microwave safe plate or pan.
  • Put the wrapped biscuits inside the microwave.
  • Reheat the biscuits for 2 minutes – in 30-second intervals.
  • Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes.

Biscuits stored in the fridge

  • Take the biscuits out of the fridge. Let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes or until it gets a bit less cold.
  • If you want, you can brush some oil or melted butter on top of the biscuits, then place it in a heat proof pan or bowl.
  • Put the biscuits inside the microwave.
  • Reheat it for 3 minutes – in 30-second intervals.
  • Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes.

Biscuits stored in the freezer

  • Take the biscuits out of the freezer and wrap it with a dampened towel.
  • Place it in a heat-proof pan or bowl with lid.
  • Put the whole container inside the microwave and lightly cover it.
  • Reheat it for 4 minutes – in 30-second intervals.
  • Once done, transfer it on the cooling rack and let it cool for 5 minutes.

Method 3: Reheating Biscuits in the Oven

This method is going to be the same whether you stored your biscuits in the pantry, fridge, or freezer. Only the reheating time will slightly vary.

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F or 180°C.Take a baking sheet or pan. Line it with parchment paper then grease it with some cooking spray.
  • Now, put the biscuits side by side on the baking pan. You may opt to brush a bit of butter on top of each biscuit.
  • Put the whole pan inside the preheated oven and let it heat up for about:
  • 3 minutes – for biscuits stored in the pantry
  • 5- 8 minutes – for biscuits stored in the fridge;
  • and10-15 minutes – for frozen biscuits

My thoughts…

For me, personally, I usually store my biscuits in the fridge so it can last a bit longer and it’s easier for me to reheat it. Although, if you want to preserve it for months, then you should definitely keep it in a freezer.

When it comes to reheating biscuits, I prefer microwave. Why?

Well, for one, it is accessible. I can just pop it in and it will be ready in a few minutes. It saves a lot of time, energy, and electric consumption. Also, unlike the oven, you can easily monitor the biscuits because you reheat in small time intervals. But, frozen biscuits, in my experience, are best reheated in the oven.
