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.
Here are some simple recipes for making muffins with the All-Purpose Convenience Mix we published last weekend. You can find the recipe for the All-Purpose Convenience Mix here:
Convenience Mix Muffins
Combine mix and sugar. Beat egg and add water. Add to dry ingredients. Stir just enough to mix in dry ingredients. Fill greased muffin tins about 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes.
Measure all dry ingredients, put into mixing bowl and stir well. Mix egg and water together in another bowl, then add the dry mixture all at once. Stir slightly. The mixture should be left lumpy. Fill oiled muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 425 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Oatmeal Muffin Variations
Place egg in a bowl and beat. Add sugar and water. Continue beating. Blend in whole bran cereal. Add Convenience Mix. Stir quickly and vigorously until just mixed. Batter will look lumpy. Rub muffin pans lightly with oil. Fill about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes. Serve hot with jam or jelly.
