Biscuit Baking Mix Recipe

Biscuit Baking Mix Recipe

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

"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!"
