Biscuit baking mix

Yield: 10 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 cups Flour
⅓ cup Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Salt
2 cups Shortening

This mix is used as the basis for several of the recipes in this book. It keeps well in the pantry so it makes it easy to make shortcake, bisuits or top off a casserole.

Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. With two knives or a pastry blender, add the shortening in spoonfuls and cut it in until the mixture is the texture of coarse cornmeal. If you are using a food processor, start and stop it often during processing and watch carefully.

Keep mix stored in a labeled, tightly closed container. it will keep onteh pantry shelf for 1 to 6 months in dry weather. In hot or humid weather, it's a good idea tp keep the mix in the fridge yield 10 cups
