Can you keep uncooked bisciuts in fridge chilling for a few hours before baking?

Want to make Erin McDowell's biscuits but want to get it all out of the way and cook just before dinner. Possible?

Chilling biscuits is normally fine. They'll probably need about 3-5 extra minutes in the oven though.

The recipe is slightly different from mine, but shouldn't be any problem; I often leave the dough out wrapped for a couple of hours before forming, and leave the biscuits out after forming for an hour or so; you could probably just cover them and leave them on the counter. If you chill them it will make a very slight increase in the baking time.
