How long can I keep biscuit dough in the fridge?
Most cookie dough can be refrigerated, well-wrapped, for three to five days before baking. If you want to make it farther in advance, freeze the dough.
How do you store biscuits for later?
You can have fresh-tasting, tender biscuits anytime. Let baked biscuits sit on a wire rack until completely cool. Then, wrap each biscuit tightly in heavy-duty foil or freezer wrap and store in a gallon-sized freezer bag or airtight container. They can be stored in the freezer for 2-3 months.

How do you store and reheat biscuits?
If you want to keep them fresh and ready for reheating, it’s important to store them properly. To store biscuits in the pantry or fridge, make sure that they’ve cooled down before wrapping them in aluminum foil. Place these wrapped biscuits in a Ziploc freezer bag.
