Biscuit Mix #3
/ Cuisine: United States


Qty unit Ingredient
5 pounds
2 1/2 cups
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 cup
3/4 cup
2 pounds


Before baking, preheat oven to 425°F / 220°C / Gas Mark 7

Stir together all-purpose flour, powdered milk, salt, cream of tartar, sugar and baking powder.

Using a pastry blender or 2 kitchen knives, cut the shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles fine crumbs.

Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Properly stored, this mixture will keep for about a month. Be sure to label and date your container.

To make the Biscuits:
Mix together; 3 cups of the biscuit mixture and 3/4 cup of water. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for about 20 seconds.

Pat down or roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter. If you don't have a biscuit cutter, you can use the open end of a drinking glass.

Bake in a preheated 425°F oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve hot. Makes 10-12 biscuits.
