Biscuit Master Baking Mix

For biscuits, pancakes, waffles, muffins, gingerbread, cookies, cakes and lots of other good things.

9 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk solids
2 cups shortening (which does not
require refrigeration)

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar and sugar three times. Add dry milk. Mix well. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or two knives until mixture looks like cornmeal. Store in covered container at room temperature.
NOTE: To measure the Master Baking Mix, pile it lightly into cup and level off with a table knife.

So far I've used it to make drop biscuits and an Italian bake. In both cases it was very good. Would you like the recipes I have that use this bisquick?

dry milk. you find it where the salt sugar and other baking goods are at the grocery store. At least that's where it is usually located. It's dehydrated milk and it's had all the fat removed as well.

I have skim milk powder...is that a nonfat dry milk solid? [dunno] As you can tell, I'm not the best baker...maybe I should stick with bisquick [Big Grin]

skim milk powder is just fine for this recipe. Your doing great. Do you want the recipes that you can make with it? I'm sure you have some off of the bisquick box. I've found the ones I've tried to be very good so far. I made the italian bake last night and it was yummy.

tkhooper, would love to see recipes for using your special mix. Have been trying to find recipes.

The mix will be great timesaver. Love the Impossible Coconut Pie.

Thanks,
