Biscuit Baking Mix Recipe

Publisher Photo
You need just four common pantry staples to put together this versatile mix. I use it in recipes that call for store-bought baking mix. It's the key to lightly browned biscuits as well as to chunky dumpling soup. —Tami Christman, Soda Springs, Idaho

"I would rather use the heart healthy biscuit baking mix...do you have a recipe or suggestions for making that?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 7, 2013

"Great alternative to store-bought...and quick enough to mix up in a pinch if you "need" it for another recipe. I usually make mine in a food processor, but it's not necessary. I have to halve the recipe, most processors won't hold 9 c. of flour! Keeps well; can't tell the difference from store-bought. I like that I can modify the sodium content too; most mixes have LOADS of added salt."

"I needed some Bisquick for a recipe today and didn't have any so I made up this mix! It turned out so well. I used it to make my egg casserole and bicuits to go along with it! Both were a big hit!"
