To Make Biscuits-
Use 2 1/4 c. Mix
3/4 Cup of Milk
Mix until it forms a soft dough, roll it or pat it out on a Silpat or lightly floured surface, cut out with a floured biscuit cutter. If you’d rather make drop biscuits (which don’t require rolling/cutting) increase milk to 1 cup and drop large spoonfuls of dough onto a Silpat or non-stick baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes
To Make the BEST Pancakes:
1 c. Mix
3/4 c. Milk
2 Tbs Canola Oil
In a medium bowl combine the mix with milk, egg, and oil, mixing lightly until all the ingredients are combined, but don’t overmix as this can make the pancakes tough.
Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat, add a dollop of butter to the pan, once the butter is sizzling pour the batter onto the hot griddle. To ensure even pancakes pour the batter into one spot. Cook until bubbles form over the surface, flip once to brown the other side evenly.
