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.
