BISQUICK (OR BAKING MIX)
6 cups all purpose flour
3 Tbs. Baking Powder
1 Tbs. salt
1 Cup vegetable shortening (like Crisco)
The easiest way to do this is in a food processor. Mix all together until it’s smooth like cornmeal. Keep in a tightly sealed jar. I put mine in a ziplock baggie, label it, and keep in the freezer–keeps for MONTHS!
Now here are two recipes to do with the above mix
KFC’S BISCUITS (this makes a lot of biscuits, so you might want to 1/2 it!)
1/2 Cup (one stick) butter
2 1/2 Tbs. white sugar
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup buttermilk*
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup club soda*
5 cups Bisquick baking mix
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine all ingredients, knead gently with your hands and roll out flat to about 3/4 ” thickness. Cut biscuits with a biscuit or cookie cutter. Bake on greased cookie sheet about 12 minutes, or till golden brown. (This recipe courtesy of “Top Secret Recipes” by Todd Wilbur)
*If you don’t have buttermilk you can make it yourself by putting about one Tbs. vinegar in a cup of milk
*did you notice the unusual addition of Club Soda? It makes the dough SO light! I often use it now when I do any doughy thing–like dumplings!
GARLIC CHEESE BISCUITS FROM RED LOBSTER
2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter with 1/2 tsp. garlic powder added.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine cheese, Bisquick, and milk to make a soft dough. Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or till brown. Remove from oven and Immediately brush tops with garlic butter mixture. Serve!
One thought on “Make your own BISQUICK…. (or baking mix)”
ok this is not on my new low carb diet, but when I was free to enjoy her biscuits we would make W. Virginia milk, butter and flour gravy. Believe me this is W.V. heaven! Enjoy
