    Yup. that would be the stuff. I make up a slightly different variation of this as follows:
    Master Mix
    (Bisquick? Bisquick?!! We don’t need no stinkin’ Bisquick!)

    To make 13 cups of Master Mix:

    9 cups sifted all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup double acting baking powder
    1 tablespoon salt
    2 teaspoon cream of tarter
    ¼ cup sugar
    2 ½ cups non fat dry milk
    2 cups shelf stable shortening (or butter if stored in freezer)

    Stir baking powder, salt, cream of tarter and sugar into flour. Sift together 3 times into a large bowl. Cut in shortening until mix is the consistency of corn meal. If using a food processor divide dry ingredients in approximate quarters and cut in ½ cup shortening (or butter) at a time. Bringing the batches back together and incorporating them well at the last. Store prepared mix in covered containers at room temperature or freezer if butter was used. To measure master mix, pile it lightly into cup and level off with spatula.

    Why does your recipe have cream of tartar if you already have baking powder? Did you mean Baking soda? I'm looking for a gluten free baking mix, my husband loves biscuits but can't have them with wheat flour, I wonder if this will work with other flours?

    Thanks for posting this. I don't usually use Bisquick, and had to get some for a specific recipe. I was horrified at how much it cost! for just a regular box. I will be mixing this up and figuring out the cost! Thanks~

    Be sure to store it in the fridge, butter goes rancid rather quickly in the pantry.
    ~Enjoy!~
