How to Make Your Own Biscuit Mix
Sure, you can buy pre-made biscuit mix at the store, but why not make your own at home? Having this mix on hand not only makes it a breeze to make biscuits and pancakes (you can use it just like the store bought variety), it also saves you money!
  • 12 cups flour
  • 6 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and mix thoroughly. Using a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut the butter into the mix. Store in an airtight container. This mix will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
  2. To make biscuits, combine 2-1/4 cups of the mix with ⅔ cup milk and mix together until you have a nice soft dough. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface such as a cutting board or counter and cut into biscuits using a biscuit cutter (a clean soup or vegetable can or a drinking glass can substitute in a pinch). Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 450 for about 10 minutes.
