Homemade Betty Crocker Bisquick

I am looking fo a homemade version of Betty Crocker boxed "Bisquick" mix. I have used it for years and know it's out there somewhere. It's quicker and easier than the "flour" way, since I usually don't have all the goodies anyway. Thank you for your help.

8 cups flour

8 teaspoons baking powder

4 teaspoons salt

1-1/2 cups shortening

Sift flour and measure. Sift again with the baking powder and salt.

Cut in the shortening until the mixture has a fine even crumb. Place in a closed container and keep in refrigerator, using as desired.

This mixture will keep at least a month in the refrigerator. It will yield five batches with two cups of the mixture to the batch. It may be used for biscuits, dumplings, shortcake, waffles, muffins, quick coffee cake, and dozens of other things.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------

8 Cups Flour

1/3 Cup Baking Powder

2 Tsps Salt

8 Tsps Sugar

1 Cup shortening

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Cut in the shortening using a

pastry blender, or the old fashion ways with two knives or he he ( I

use the bread hooks on my mixer). It should look like coarse meal when


Store in quart jars in the refrigerator or freezer. To each cup of mix

add 1/3 cup of milk. Knead, roll out and cut biscuits.

Pre-heat oven to 450* Bakes in 12 to 13 minutes depending on your oven.

To use a quart jar, dump contents into large bowl, add 1- 1/3 cups of milk.

If you store them in the freezer let them warms up some before you use

it. Maybe a half hour in the bowl.
