Grandma’s Biscuit Mix

8 cups all purpose flour

1/3 cup baking powder

2 t salt

1 cup cold butter or shortening

Blend all to a fine mealy consistency and store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Add 1/3 cup of milk for each cup of dry mixture. Roll or pat down onto floured surface to about 1” in depth and cut with biscuit cutter or a glass.

Brush tops with melted butter, optional. (I did for the picture)

Bake at 425° until golden brown. Best served warm right out of the oven!


My grandma and my mother where the best cooks, I can’t help but think of them when I am baking and enjoying these biscuits.
