|8 cups flour |
1/3 cup baking powder
2 tsp cream of tartar
3 T sugar
1 1/2 cups dry milk powder
|Mix together thoroughly.|
Hint: I add my flour in lumps so that I know how many cups I have put into the bowl in case I get interrupted or side tracked.
Add to flour mixture:
|2 cups vegetable shortening||Cut in until mixture is fine uniform crumbles.|
The mixture does not turn brown, I just got some really bad lighting from my camera for some reason. Sorry.
Store in an air tight container in cool dry place. I store mine in a gallon zip lock bag.
Yields: 13 cups mix which makes 45 to 30 biscuits
This mix also makes Cinnamon Rolls, Pancakes, Pizza dough, Pot Pie crust, and fruit shortcakes.
Tomorrow I will show you how to make the best homemade biscuits using this mix…
