***Bisquick or Arrowhead Mills make great all purpose baking mixes. If you prefer to make your own,
- 6 cups all purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups vegetable shortening
1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
2. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Store in a container with tight-fitting lid. Will keep for up to 2 months. This mix can also be frozen in airtight bags, it does pick up freezer odors, so package tightly.
Makes about 8 cups
