Homemade Biscuit Mix
first column is a full batch, second ( ) is half.
10 c flour (5)
1/2 c baking powder (1/4)
2 tsp salt (1)
1 1/4 c shortening or vegebable oil (1/2 c +2 tbsp)
Mix well. If using shortening, use a pastry blender to cut it in. Store in a zipper bag in cool place. Use like Bisquick. I make mine with half whole wheat flour and vegetable oil to boost nutrition and cut down on transfat.
Cobbler using the mix.
Prepare fruit as you would for a pie, with sugar, spices, and cornstarch for thickening. Put fruit into an 8x8 or 9 inch glass baking pan. I add a bit of grated lemon rind and a tbsp of lemon juice to zip up the flavor of some things, and I always use brown sugar instead of white.
To make the topping use
1 c biscuit mix
1/4 c milk
1/4 c sugar (I use brown)
2 tbsp melted butter or oil
Stir together just until the ingredients are all moistened, then stir in
1/2 c chopped walnuts
Using 2 spoons, place small globs of dough on the fruit. There will be gaps, that's ok, the juice will bubble up through them.
Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack. Best served warm!
