Total time:  Approximately 10 minutes.

I’ve been finding more and more recipes call for Bisquick. What?! Who buys that stuff anymore?! Not me. Instead, I’ve decided to make my own. The only catch is: You always add milk instead of water.

4 cups all purpose flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 cup butter flavored shortening (or plain shortening)
1 Tbsp + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt (omit if using butter flavored shortening)

Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Cut in shortening with pastry blender, or the double-knife trick that no one I have ever met has been able to master, until the mixture is similar to cornmeal.

Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. I really wouldn’t go longer than that, but it’s your health, not mine.
