Quick & Easy Biscuit Mix

I came across this idea & recipe in Backwoods Home Magazine (May). I am always looking for new ideas that are easy and inexpensive. This is the mix I made up:

  • 10 cups flour
  • 10 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar

Mix, Make your first batch, Store remaining for future biscuit making.


I used a tuna can to cut the dough. They were a big hit with the family.


Then wrote the directions on my storage container because I’d never remember.
This is what you do….
  • 2 cups of mix
  • 6T. of butter (softened)
  • 1 cup of milk

(or buttermilk for fluffier biscuits)

I mixed the biscuit mix with butter in my kitchen-aid then added milk. Turned onto a floured board & kneaded for 30 seconds. Do not overwork dough. Pat into 1/2 inch-thick circle and cut with biscuit cutter or tuna can). Place on ungreased oven at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
