[Edit]things you should know

  • Reheat remaining biscuits on a parchment-covered baking sheet in the oven at 350° F (176° C) for 3-5 minutes.
  • Reheat each of your biscuits in the microwave by wrapping them in a damp paper towel and heating for 45-60 seconds.
  • For extra flavor and moisture, brush your biscuits with melted butter before reheating them.



  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F (176° C) and butter your biscuits. Once your oven is preheated to 350°F (176°C), use a pastry or basting brush to spread a light layer of melted butter over your biscuits. It helps in making your biscuits delicious, moist and flaky.[1]

  2. Place your biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. While your oven is heating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, lay out your biscuits in even rows, spacing them about 1 inch (2 cm) apart.[2]
  3. Bake your biscuits at 350° F (176° C) for 3 to 5 minutes. Once your oven is hot, place your biscuits inside. Set a timer for 3 minutes, watching your biscuits closely to make sure they don’t burn or overcook. If they’re not hot after 3 minutes, give them another 1 to 2 minutes.[3]
    • for frozen biscuits: Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Take out the biscuit and eat it. Carefully take your hot, buttered biscuits out of the oven. Simply plate them and then load them up with more butter or your favorite jam![4]

  1. Wrap each biscuit in a damp paper towel. For moist, flaky biscuits in the microwave, start by wetting several paper towels. You want them moist, but not wet. Then, wrap each biscuit in a paper towel. This helps to lock in the moisture so that your biscuits do not turn out tough and dry.[5]
  2. Microwave your biscuits in a microwave safe plate for 45 seconds. Place your biscuits in an even layer on a microwave safe plate or dish. Put them in the microwave for 45 seconds. If they’re not hot enough for your liking, microwave them in 15-second intervals until they’re done.[6]

    • for frozen biscuits: Microwave for 4 minutes.[7]
    • Microwaves with less than 1,000 wattage may require an additional 15 to 30 seconds.
  3. Take your biscuits out of the microwave and serve. Carefully remove the paper towels from your biscuits, as they may be hot. Then just put them on a plate and serve them with eggs, sausage or your favorite jam![8]


  1. Preheat a pan on the stove on medium heat. Preheating your griddle is similar to preheating your oven, which helps distribute the heat more evenly. When you place your biscuits in a preheated pan, they heat up quickly and become super flaky and buttery.[9]

  2. Butter your biscuits and wrap them in aluminum foil. To enhance their flavor and bring moisture back into your biscuits, using a pastry or basting brush, lightly brush melted butter on top of each biscuit. Then, take out some aluminum foil. Gently wrap each biscuit inside the foil to prevent burning.[10]
    • If you are using a non-stick pan, you do not need to wrap the biscuits in aluminum foil.
  3. Put the biscuits in the pan and keep it covered. Place your biscuits in the pan such that they are barely touching each other. Then, place a lid over the pan to increase the humidity and help your biscuits heat more evenly.[11]
  4. Cook your biscuits on low heat for 2 minutes, turning every 30 seconds. Once your biscuits are in the pan, turn the heat down to low. Set timer for 2 minutes, turning biscuits every 30 seconds.[12]
    • If you are reheating unwrapped biscuits in a non stick pan, turn the biscuits every 15 seconds.[13]
    • for frozen biscuits: Cook on low heat for about 6 minutes, keep turning them every 1 minute.[14]
  5. Remove the biscuits from the pan and enjoy. Carefully remove the aluminum foil from your biscuits, as both the foil and the biscuits will be hot. Then, take out your favorite jam, jelly, or buttercream and eat your biscuits while they’re still warm.[15]

[Edit]toaster oven

  1. Preheat your toaster oven to 350° F (176° C). Heating your biscuits in a toaster oven is similar to an oven, but better for small batches of leftovers. Simply set your toaster oven to 350° F (176° C) and let it heat up.[16]

  2. Butter your biscuits and place them on a parchment lined sheet. For extra moist, delicious biscuits, spread melted butter over them with a pastry or basting brush. Then, place a piece of parchment paper on top of your toaster oven’s baking sheet. Put biscuits on top, leaving about 1 inch (2 cm) between them.[17]
  3. Bake your biscuits at 350° F (176° C) for 3 minutes. Once your toaster oven is nice and hot, put your biscuits in. Watch them closely to make sure they don’t burn or overcook.[18]

    • for frozen biscuits: Bake for 10 minutes, checking them carefully.[19]
  4. Remove your biscuits and serve with jam and butter. When your biscuits are completely warm, take them out of the toaster oven. While they are still hot, transfer them to a serving plate. Bring out your favorite jams, jellies and butters to enjoy![20]

[Edit]air fryer

  1. Heat your air fryer to 320° F (160° C). An air fryer is a great option for reheating a small batch of leftover biscuits. Preheating your air fryer helps your biscuits heat up quickly and turn out perfectly fresh and flaky.[21]

  2. Pour melted butter over your biscuits and wrap them in aluminum foil. Using a pastry or basting brush, apply a light layer of buttercream to the top of your biscuits for extra flavor and moisture. Then, wrap each biscuit in aluminum foil. This helps retain even more moisture, bringing your leftover biscuits back to life.[22]
  3. Place your biscuits in the air fryer and cook at 320° F (160° C) for 2 minutes. Place your biscuits in the bottom of your air fryer basket. Then, set a timer for 2 minutes. If your biscuits aren’t warm enough when the time is up, give them 1 more minute.[23]

    • for frozen biscuits: Cook them for full 3 minutes.
  4. Remove your biscuits from the air fryer and enjoy. Once your biscuits are hot and buttery, take them out of the air fryer and carefully remove the aluminum foil. Serve them with other breakfast foods such as eggs, bacon and sausage, or simply serve them with butter or jam.[24]

[Edit]storing your biscuits

  1. Store the remaining biscuits in an airtight container in the pantry for 5 days. If you want to store your biscuits at room temperature, place them in an airtight storage container or plastic bag. Keep them in a cool, dry place where they will be fine for up to 5 days.[25]
  2. Refrigerate biscuits in an airtight container for up to 1 week. To keep your leftover biscuits for a while, pop them in the fridge. Simply put them in an airtight container or plastic storage bag. Your biscuits will stay fresh for up to 1 week when kept in the fridge.[26]

  3. Freeze biscuits in aluminum foil and freezer bags for up to 2 months. If you have large batches of leftover biscuits, freezing is definitely the way to go. Simply wrap each biscuit in aluminum foil and place them in a plastic freezer bag. In the freezer, biscuits usually keep for up to 2 months.[27]

    • Write down the date you put the biscuits in the freezer so you know how long they’ll stay fresh.
