Biscuit Mix



  1. Blend together dry ingredients, then cut in shortening with pastry blender to make mixture as granular as possible.
  2. Use as Bisquick© in recipes.


Backpacking Mix



  1. Mix into a coarse texture.
  2. Keep in refrigerator until leaving for camping/backpacking trip.
  3. Divide into 2 or 4 cup portions in baggies or other container for convenient use.

Procedure for Dutch oven

  1. Mix 2 cups with ½ cup water, milk, or condensed milk to use.
  2. Knead no more than 5 times, or biscuits will be tough.
  3. Roll out about ¾ inches or 2 centimeters thick.
  4. Cut into biscuit size circles.
  5. Place in preheated Dutch oven, starting at the wall and working toward the center.
  6. Replace lid, turning about ⅛ turn for a good fit.
  7. If heat is right, biscuits will be done in about 15 minutes, if brown in 10 minutes or less, the centers may not be done.

Tips and Notes

  • About 2 cups of mix will pretty well fill a 12 inch Dutch oven.
  • Place a few more coals or charcoal briquettes on lid than beneath it.
  • Preheat Dutch oven until lightly smoking; a moistened finger tapped lightly on the metal will sizzle.
