Hi. I made another recipe of "homemade bisqick" and I made biscuits out of it this morning. It is WAY too salty. SO I came to find another recipe and I found this one. It looks like every single review is awesome so I am going to try it, without the salt, just this once and mix it with mine so I don't lose half a container of ingredients. Looking forward to trying this.
I made this recipe when I wanted to make the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit recipe which calls for Bisquick. The biscuits turned out great! I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't sift the dry ingrediants. I used organic non-hydrogenated shotening. I will now stop avoiding recipes which call for Bisquick because now I can make my own Bisquick. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
Absolutely perfect! I didn't sift, but used my Cuisineart on pulse to mix, including the shortening. Also used Cream of Tartar & soda in equal parts for raising agent, as my husband HATES the metallic taste of baking powder. Very happy with how it acted and tasted in my "Baked Ground Beef Bake"! You'll like this too.
OUTSTANDING! I made this mix (so easy)and then used some of it to make the dumplings on my homemade chicken and dumplings. The only thing I added was parsley and buttermilk, to make a soft, moist dough. They were the best dumplings I've ever made, because the mix was so well formulated. We liked it better then the original Bisquick mix dumplings. Update 1/5/08: I also used mix to make pancakes (adding a little oil, buttermilk and 1 egg). They were delicious! Thanks for a very delicious "substitute" recipe.

I live in a small rural community just south of Kansas City, MO. I have three sons, one in the Navy in Virginia, one in the Air Force in Montana, and one here in MO. All are single. I live with my DH and one very spoiled (rescued)cat named "Oscar" who loves to watch TV when I put his "Hammy Hamister" tape in. I retired from full time work when we were transferred to southern California for three years. Loved That! Since coming back to Missouri, I work a few hours a week for our oldest son. Otherwise I'm usually home on the zaar website! Where does the time go????? I have hundreds of cookbooks and enjoy reading them all, but I especially enjoy the cookbooks with "pictures" of the finished product! My passions, besides my husband, include collecting cookbooks, collecting Boyds Bears, collecting Peteroboro Baskets, vacationing in Palm Springs, getting on the Zaar site, and making our cat happy! I don't really think much about pet peeves, but I do dislike all the "insert" pages the magazine companies put in their magazines!
