Baking Mix Aka "bisquick"

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This is a recipe that is higher in fiber and slightly lower in fat than most of the ones already posted. I use whole wheat pastry flour and the shortening is the zero trans fat variety. This can be used just like Bisquick for making pancakes or biscuits. The recipe comes from The New American Diet cookbook.

How easy! This came in very handy for Leslie in Texas' Sausage Squares. I used all all-purpose flour, and inadvertently made it "low sodium" because I forgot to add the salt... oops. I changed the yield to 3 cups, and used butter rather than shortening (since I was going to use all of it right away, and therefore it wouldn't have to sit around and go rancid on me). Thanks for posting!
