Hi there,

I'm new to Mumsnet. I discovered a slowcooker recipe online today that I'm very keen to make for tonight, here's a link:

Only problem is I'm unsure as to where you can get Refrigerated Biscuit Dough in Manchester (where I am based.)

It's not an ingredient I've ever heard of before and I've already gathered from a little bit of googling that it's a much more common ingredient in the US.

If anyone knows either a place in Manchester where I could get some refrigerated biscuit dough, or has an idea of what would be an effective substitute for this recipe, I'd be super grateful!

You'll probably have to make your own, but it's not that difficult. generally it's made of four, butter, salt and baking powder. There's a recipe on cooking for engineers that is really simple and we'll explained, but I can't link to it as on phone.

Thanks, unfortunately I don't think I'm gonna have time to make my own. I may have to change my plans of what I'm cooking this evening.

I did call Asda in Hulme to see if they had anything like it but apparently they don't.

You can get it in sainsburys. Usually next to the ready made refrigerated pastry.

It's an American recipe- don't buy British biscuit dough! In America, biscuit means something like a scone or a dumpling.

Buy a packet of scone mix, make it up according to the packet and put that on top. Or a packet of dumpling mix.

Thanks, Hakluyt, that's super helpful! Asda definitely do scone mix so I'll grab some of that!

It's kind of like a savoury scone or dumpling - but it's flaky. Are the biscuits used as a topping or base because I think that will effect what will work best. is it's a base the schooner stuff should be OK, but as a ripping I think it would be to heavy.
