    Shortcake using biscuit mix

    Using the basic 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.

    Fruit shortcake

    4 cups biscuit mix
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 eggs well beaten
    Butter softened
    2 quarts berries
    Whipped cream

    Add mix and sugar then add eggs and water mix lightly to form soft dough
    Divide in half and press half in a greased deep 9" layer cake pan
    Spread with butter spread remaining dough evenly over first layer leaving the top rough.
    Bake @425* approx 30 minutes. Separate layers and brush stack berries between halves and on top. Serve warm with whipped topping
    6-8 servings
