    Biscuit Mix

    This recipe is sort of a make your own Bisquick type of thing.
    I have had it since my late teens when I went to live with and take care of my Grandpa after my Grandma passed away. My recipe card says it came from Woman's Day Magazine #213
    Grandpa loved that it was way cheaper to make biscuits this way than buying the Bisquick.
    Recipe makes 11 cups of mix

    8 cups flour
    1 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk
    5 Tbsp double acting naming powder
    1 Tbsp salt
    1 cup shortening or butter

    Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with fork.
    Work in butter with fingertips until very fine

    Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.

    To make 18 Biscuits

    2 3/4 cups mix
    3/4 cup cold water

    Blend mix and water to form soft dough
    Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly (about 8 turns)
    Roll or pat to about 1/2 inch thick
    Cut with floured 2" cutter and put on baking sheet
    Bake in preheated 425* oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
