It’s convenient to have a box of Bisquick handy to make a quick batch of biscuits, pancakes, waffles, etc. But, you can still have that convenience and spend LESS money by making your own mix! It only takes a few minutes to make the original mix (this recipe makes 12 1/2 cups) and then using it is just as quick and easy as using the Bisquick.
Mix first four ingredients in a large bowl (whisking well). With two forks, or a pastry cutter if you have one, cut the shortening into the mixture until it forms coarse crumbs. Mix can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
GIFT IDEA: Mix up a batch of this and pack in a jar with a bow to give a special homemade gift to your friends or family. Attach a card with ideas for use.
