Baking Biscuit Mix

Baking Biscuit Mix

Preparation Time10 min


  • 8 1/2 cups all white, or half white and half whole wheat
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup skim milk powder
  • 1 pound solid vegetable shortening (like Crisco)


  1. In a huge bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients until you're sure they're well mixed.
  2. Using a pastry blender, cut the shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal. This can also be done in batches in a food processor - just make sure you divide the ingredients equally, and don't over-process.
  3. Store the mixture at room temperature in a tightly covered container, and use in any recipe that calls for store-bought biscuit mix. Makes tons.
