      Thankyou so much forthis recipe! So many recipeson Zaar call for Bisquik, and we don't have that in Australia. I used your recipe as a substitute tonight, and it worked perfectly! I'm going to buy some buttermilk tomorrow, to try the mix as actual biscuits! ********************************************* UPDATE: I wish I could give this another 5 stars! I just used the remaining mix to actually make the biscuits, and they are amazing! This is only the second time I have made biscuits, but this recipe is unbeatable! I used the mix I made 1 month ago. I had it stored in the fridge, and it has kept just fine. I had to microwave it for 15 seconds to soften the shortening (I used copha) and then I mixed in 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Perfect biscuits!

      Of all the biscut mix recipes here, this was one of the simplest. I used this to substitute for Bisquick in a cornbread recipe (#83483), & the results were spectacular. I seldom use Bisquick so I am thrilled to have a fast & easy substitute. I halved the recipe, but still have enough left to make the biscuits. Thanks Darlene!

      I used this recipie to make a TON of biscuits to freeze. And for the casing to some biscuit pockets. Both are great. This has become a staple in my kitchen.
