    1 Tbsp. baking powder
    1 Tbsp. salt
    2 tsp. cream of tartar

    2 1/4 cups vegetable shortening

    In a large bowl, sift together all ingredients. Blend well. With pastry
    blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed. Mixture will resemble cornmeal in texture. Put in a large airtight container. Label and store in a cool dry place. Use within 10 to 12 weeks.
    Variation: Use 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 4 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour instead of 8 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. Increase baking powder to 2 tablespoons.

    This is a staple item in my house! No clue what I would do if we didn't have it on hand so many different things you can make out of this base.
    Thanks

    Here's a slightly different version from my files that also might store longer, if a person has such a need.

    Bisquick Mix (Low Fat)

    3 1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt

    1. Mix together.
    2. Cover tightly and store.
    3. Use water, buttermilk or skim milk to moisten.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

    we now have a small, medium, and large (two with sugar) version. I'm referring to amounts biggerpiggybank posted some time back a larger version. I posted mine since it didn't have any sugar so now everyone can pick and choose what suits them best! isn't this site wonderful?!?
