Homemade Bisquick

This is a basic recipe I use for just about everything…  I’ve made cookies with it, dumplings (sweet ones and savory ones), biscuits…  It’s very versatile.

Ingredients:

  • 2 c. all purpose flour (although whole wheat also works)
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cold butter

Preparation: Mix all in dry ingredients.  You can either use a pastry blender to  cut the butter into it, but I prefer doing a couple of batches at a time in my food processor.  Whichever method you prefer, blend until it reaches an almost fine crumbly kind of texture.  You may want to add a bit more butter if it’s not reaching the consistency that  you like.  It should not be wet.  I put it in a Ziploc freezer bag and store in my cupboard for months at a time.
