8 cups flour 1/3 cup baking powder
8 tsp sugar 2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp salt 1 cup powdered milk*
1 3/4 cup shortening
Sift dry ingredients 3 times, then cut in shortening. Pack loosely in airtight container.
Method: 1 cup mix, 1/3 cup water
Mix, then bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (*Powdered milk may be omitted when milk is used instead of water when making the biscuits.)
- Mandy’s Hints: The above recipe is written just as it appears in the book. I used butter-flavored Crisco as the shortening.
- I halved the recipe as I don’t go through this mix that quickly.
*The Amish Cooking cookbook has hundreds (maybe thousands? I haven’t counted and don’t plan on it..) of recipes and no names were listed as to whom to give credit to for the actual individual recipes. Therefore, I can not give credit to the proper person for this quick and easy biscuit mix.
