Here is a basic recipe for biscuits using the All-Purpose Convenience Mix followed by some interesting variations.
Add water to the Convenience Mix all at once. Blend lightly with a fork to form a soft dough and turn onto a floured board. Knead the dough slightly and then roll or pat the dough to not less than 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 9 biscuits.
Combine ingredients as above and continue as follows:
Use a little more liquid. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto a greased pan and bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes.
Roll biscuit mix to 1/4-inch thickness. Spread with margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins. Roll up like a jelly roll. Slice into sections and bake on a greased pan. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Leftover meat, tuna fish or chopped meat can be spread on the rolled out biscuit dough. This can rolled up like a jelly roll, sliced into sections and baked on a greased pan. Sections can be served plain or with a cheese sauce. Bake at 450 degrees F for 12 minutes.
Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup grated American or cheddar cheese to 3 cups mix. Prepare as biscuits above.

This convenience mix sounds really good and it would be so handy and economical. Since my husband is lactose-intolerant, could I leave out the dry milk powder and when I used the mix, add the liquid lactose-free milk that he can tolerate, in place of the water called for the in recipe?
