Absolutely the very very very best dumplings I have ever had were made from this mix.

This is my very favorite homemade mix. I don't buy the biscuit mixes in town, and haven't for decades, because they have aluminum in them. This allows me the convenience of a pre-packaged mix, but no nasty stuff in it. I keep it in the fridge. Such a useful recipe.

I was in the middle of making an impossibly easy pie when I discovered I was out of baking mix. Taste of Home to the rescue! I really only needed one cup, so I cut the recipe in half. I threw all the ingredients into a food processor with the dough blade and just let it run until everything was mixed well. It worked perfectly and saved my dinner. I used the leftover mix for pancakes in the morning. Saying goodbye to the store-bought stuff!

I tried this mix out and it was awesome. I plan to make several batches and give them out with several recipes in a pretty glass jar. Thank you so much Tami...

I make this with whole wheat pastry flour. Works great.

It worked so I was happy! I still need to play around with it to perfect ratio for biscuits.

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

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.
