Biscuit Mix

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Wilmom

This recipe came from a cookbook called Missouri Mix, and makes enough mix for about 4 "batches" of 6 biscuits each. So easy to prepare when you're in a hurry! Just use it like you would Bisquick, or any of the commercial biscuit mixes. Keeps about 2 months, in a tightly covered container, in your cabinet shelf. See my other recipes that use this Mix.
