Make your own BISQUICK…. (or baking mix)

Another one from Anne Taintor


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)

*two notes:

*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!


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!IMG_0043
