Often a recipe will call for Bisquick Mix…who buys that stuff? Not me. Never have, never will. I usually just whip up a batch of BP Biscuit dough and use that but sometimes you just don’t have time to go through the added time of making the BP dough. Then it struck me that someone surely would have come up with a homemade version, right? Right! Homemade Biscuit Mix. at Food.com had what I was looking for. Now I try to keep a batch of this in the fridge during the cooler winter nights so I can easily whip up a batch of biscuits or use in recipes calling for Bisquick Mix.
6 cups Flour
3 Tablespoons Baking Powder
1 cup Milk Powder

With motor running, drop cubed shortening through the feeder tube and process just until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Use whenever a recipe calls for Bisquick Mix.
* If you don’t have a food processor:
Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
Use a pastry blender, two knives or your hands to cut shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
