Pilsbury frozen biscuit

I'm looking for the frozen biscuit tubes. I can find just about everywhere type of product from pilsbury but not the biscuit dough. Has anyone seen them sold in Montreal? Doesn't have to be pilsbury, any brand will do.

      No, I believe he means the Southern term for biscuit! And I am afraid I have never ever seen that particular Pillsbury's product at all in Quebec (it's ubiquitous back home in the South), but that is not surprising!

      1. Lol that's the one. I can find them everywhere in Plattsburgh but I need them this weekend and don't feel like driving all that way.

          Sadly, I believe you are SOL, my friend.

        2. They're not sold in Quebec. Maybe you can substitute their crescent dough product. I think they're pretty similar.

            They are listed as a canadian product on general mills website

            I recall buying some for a recipe, and I think Walmart carries them

              I never saw them when I was looking for them a few years ago and now I haven't checked in well over a year.

                They show up sometimes in supermarkets. I remember seeing some and thinking "Someone on CH was looking for these".

          2. I don't think you CAN freeze the dough in those tubes. They are pressure packed and the whole freezing/thawing process - not good for that kind of stuff..

            In the states, the frozen biscuits you find are par baked, usually in bags. Just take out what you need, put it on a cookie sheet and bake -


            But jonhalf - biscuits are easy! In the time it takes your oven to heat, you can mix up a batch - or two! Get this Marion Cunningham book -

            Look at her biscuit recipe, get a nice soft wheat flour (like for scones) and go!

                I make a great biscuit from quark cheese. Really easy, just takes 15 minutes and it tastes like a pretty good biscuit
