The freezer biscuits worked well. They weren't quite as fluffy as I would have liked, but the texture was right. Next time I just won't roll them quite as thin.
This was a win win recipe for us. I had to have them in the oven and ready before my husband came down. I put them in the pan and set them in the refrigerator at night. Next morning while the oven preheated I left them on the counter. 410F for 15 minutes....and we had fresh baked biscuits for breakfast.
