Excerpted from the Introduction Introduction

Time. We do not have enough of this ingredient. My first pastry job was at a big hotel, and, to save time, we had a large bin filled with a flour mixture that was used for many different recipes. I was surprised at the versatility of this flour mix. We used it for every baked good, from cookies to muffins, just adding the required perishable ingredients to create a tasty treat. Now, at home, you can stir up a batch of biscuit mix and keep it on hand. When you need to save time in your busy day, just add a few ingredients to this mix and you'll have a main dish or a batch of cookies in no time.

Fast and Easy Biscuit Mix

There are many brands of biscuit mixes available. In this cookbook, I tested the recipes with Bisquick®. If you are using a biscuit mix other than this or the homemade one below, be aware that the results may differ depending on the active ingredients within the mix. As a general rule, low-fat biscuit mixes will produce a drier texture in baked goods. If you prefer to make your biscuit mix from scratch, here is my homemade version for you to keep on hand.

Makes about 8 cups (2 L)

Tip:
Place in an airtight container in your pantry. Use within 3 months.

  • 4 1/2 cups (1.125 L) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 ml) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1 cup plus 1 tbsp (265 mL) vegetable shortening

In a large bowl, using a fork, blend together flour, dry milk, sugar baking powder, salt and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, blending fork (see page 13) or two knives, blend in shortening until well dispersed.
