Bisquick is simply a pre mix of flour and the shortening. The following recipe comes from the book: oops I no longer have the title page, but it's something like _Make Your Own Food_ check the library (which is a very good book full of good recipes). ***Biscuit Mix*** Ingredients: 4 cups unbleached white flour 2/3 cup instant non fat dry milk 1 tsp salt 3 tbsp double acting baking powder 1/2 cup good veretable oil Mix flour, milk, salt and baking powder together in blender or food processor. Mix well, then blend in the oil. Empty into covered container, and store in fridge until needed. This yields about 5 cups of mix. Each cup of mix makes about six biscuits. To make biscuits: add 1/2 cup water to each 1 cup of mix. Roll out dough 1/2 inch thick on lightly floured board, cut into biscuits & bake on a greased cookie sheet in a pre heated 425 deg. oven for approx. 10 minutes. Sorry about the imperial measurements, fahrenheit & so on, but it is an old book.
