    • 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.

      Which is more frugal, hand washing or dishwasher?

      My husband and I bought a house last summer and it came with a dishwasher. We were so excited because it was the first we ever had! Now, it's a burden. It's a piece of junk and never gets the dishes...
