Homemade Biscuit Mix

This is not rocket science, but it is handy to know/have. Lots of holiday recipes call for Bisquick (like sausage balls!), but you may not have any on hand. Alternately, this mix enables you to mix up biscuits in a jiffy!


  • 9 c. flour (I used half white and half white whole wheat)
  • 1/4 c. baking powder
  • 1 T. salt
  • 2 c. Crisco or butter (I used butter)
Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly; a food processor is handy for this. You will need to store this in the fridge if you used butter (freezer if you use this infrequently).

To make biscuits like our favorite Cracker Barrel Biscuits, do the following:

  • 2 1/4 c. biscuit mix
  • 2/3-3/4 c. plain yogurt
Mix together with spoon. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead gently a few times. Pat out to desired thickness, cut, and bake at 450 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until browned. To make drop biscuits, skip the patting out step. (You will probably need the larger amount of yogurt if you are doing drop biscuits)
