This recipe works well for biscuits, but my only problem is the yield is very wrong. Another reviewer mentioned this as well. I expected 4 cups for another recipe, but when that didn't turn out well I came back and did the math, and the true yield on this is only 3 cups, not 4. It works well if you measure it out as you need it, but I should have double-checked beforehand.
I have used this type of recipe for over 30 yrs. Bisquick has gotten to expensive (not that I ever used it much) & this is the same thing. It"s so easy to make and store, not to mention how versatile it is. When I make it I do a double batch. Then I have it for pancakes, biscuits, dumplings & anything that calls for baking mix. It's a time & money saver!
I needed some Jiffy Baking Mix for Sausage Breakfast Cookies (#103611) and made this up, worked great. Thanks for the save!!
Thanks, DiB's, you saved me a trip to the store! I was making Cheese Danish Coffee Cake when I realized I hadn't noticed it called for baking mix. I quickly made a half batch of this recipe and it worked fine. I did think the baking powder taste was rather strong but that could have been due to the components of the other recipe. The yield states 4 cups but a half batch only gave me 1 1/2 cups, so keep that in mind as you prepare it for use in other recipes.
I substituted unsalted butter for the shortening due to personal preference and it still worked perfectly for Monte Cristo Delights by ~Bekah~ (#65548)
