If you've ever used Bisquick, you know it's fast, easy and not very tasty. Mix up this recipe and you will have your own homemade biscuit mix ready to go. It can be substituted in any recipe calling for Bisquick. If you use margarine/butter, make sure you store it in the fridge or freezer, but if you use vegetable shortening, then you can store it in the pantry just like the boxed stuff :)
9 Cups Flour
1/4 Cup Baking Powder
1/2 Tbsp. Salt (I used a bit less)
2 Cups Shortening/Margarine etc.
Mix together the first 3 ingredients, and then cut in the shortening until mixture is crumbly. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place or in the freezer for up to 8 months.
2 1/4 cups of this mix with 2/3 cups of milk makes the basic Bisquick recipe. Bake at 450 F 8-10 minutes until golden.
2 cups of this mix with 1 cup of milk and 2 eggs makes the basic Bisquick pancake recipe.
