    Default Backpacker's Biscuit Mix

    Backpacker's Biscuit Mix

    6 cup flour
    1 Tbsp. salt
    3 Tbsp. baking powder
    1 cup shortening
    3 Tbsp. sugar

    Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Mix in shortening with fingers until mixture
    is the consistency of fine gravel. Makes about 7 cups and will store at room temperature in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 months.

    To use, add 1 cup of milk and 2 Tbsp of butter or margarine to 2 cups of
    mix. Stir until blended. Knead until smooth and elastic. Shape into biscuits and bake in hot dutch oven or cardboard box oven until golden brown and doubled in size (about 15 minutes).
