Homemade Bisquick Mix (& Recipes to use it)

I've used this simple recipe for years.  Use it just as you would Bisquick. 
It's really great to have this on hand with all the holiday baking looming ahead! 

I made some wonderful Garlic Cheese Biscuits with it.  MMM! It's a wonderful and quick way to have biscuits on the table in no time.  Faster than mixing from scratch. 

Use it for coating chicken or veggies..whatever recipe you use that calls for Bisquick. 

It's family friendly and frugal.  Enjoy soon!

6 c. all purpose flour
1/3 c. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
3 Tb. sugar
1 c. Crisco

In large bowl, combine dry ingredients; add Crisco and blend with pastry blender (or 2 forks) until it's a fine consistency.  Store airtight. 

To make 'regular' biscuits, blend 1 cup mix with 1/3 c. milk, or buttermilk. 
Drop and bake 8 - 10 minutes at 425.

1/2 c. cheddar cheese
(we like cojack)
2 Tb. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 450. In large bowl, combine Bisquick mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms.  Drop dough into 9 spoonfuls onto an UNgreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown. Combine butter and garlic powder; brush over tops of biscuits.  Serve warm.
