I don’t keep Bisquick in the house – mostly because I don’t really use it. Occasionally I find the need for it and am certainly not going to go buy a big box of it. This recipe saves the day. It yields about 3 and a half cups, which is usually enough for my purposes. It is easily doubled if you use Bisquick more frequently and would like to stop paying an arm and a leg for it.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and stir with a whisk.
- Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
- Store mixture in airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 months.
- Use whenever your recipe calls for “Bisquick mix”.
