    Could you use shortening powder instead of the 2 cups shortening?

    I mixed up my first batch this past Friday morning, using non-dairy soy milk powder, and by Friday afternoon had already used up most of it for my weekend baking. It works beautifully!

    If you use Bisquick from the box just throw it out the window!! This is a wonderful recipe and easy to make. I'm so happy I don't have to buy a box of Bisquick any more, now that I found this! I made half of the recipe because I wanted to use it to make Sausage Cheese Muffins recipe #13668 worked wonderfully.

    Very Good! I halved the recipe and used 8 oz (by weight) of shortening. One reviewer said that it seemed too "wet". It seemed a little "wet" to me too when it was done but I made a batch of "Bisquick biscuits and they turned out good. The only thing I will change is to add more salt. The first batch of biscuits 2 1/4 cups of mix with 2/3 cups of buttermilk seemed a little flat. I made another batch and added 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the recipe and they were great! So, for half a recipe - I will add 1 teaspoon more of salt making it 2 1/2 teaspoons total per 1/2 Bisquick Clone Recipe. Even my friend who came over for dinner commented on them by saying, "I just LOVE Bisquick biscuits!" She didn't know it wasn't Bisquick. I can't wait to try some of my other Bisquick recipes.

    This is exactly like bisquick! Anyone who rated this low, had to have done it wrong. Armymomx2 must have put something extra or add too much of something? I used organic unbleached flour, aluminum free baking powder, sea salt, organic milk powder, and organic shortening (pure palm oil, no transfat). I don't like using the boxed stuff because of all the nasties, like hydrogenated oils amoung the many bad ingredients. But I LOVE chicken and dumplings with bisquick dumplings and no other way. So I am so thankful for this recipe! And it does taste exactly like the real thing and it makes up the same. I quartered this recipe and was able to make a big pot of chicken and dumplings last night and 2 large waffles this morning. YUM! Thanks so much!!
