• Baking Powder Biscuit Mix

    Baking Powder Biscuit Mix
    8 cups flour
    1/3 cup baking powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    4 teaspoons sugar
    2 cups shortening, butter or margarine

    Combine all, until mixture resembles cornmeal.
    Refrigerate. This recipe makes 12 cups of mix (or enough for 48 biscuits).

    To make 6-8 biscuits, combine 1 1/2 cups mix with 1/3 cup cold milk. Stir well with a fork until a slightly stiff dough forms. Drop biscuits from a tablespoon onto a baking sheet sprayed with oil. Bake in a preheated 450F oven for 12-14 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.

    Variations:
    To make biscuits for creamed chicken or turkey, add 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning to the mix before adding milk.
    For shortcake biscuits, add 1 tablespoon sugar to the dry mix before adding milk.
