Substitute Bisquick #2
Sift dry ingredients together in large bowl. With two knives, a pastry blender, or your food processor, cut shortening in in spoonsful until mixture is texture of course cornmeal. If you are using a food processor, start and stop often during processing and watch it closely.
Keep mix stored in labeled, tightly closed container. It will keep on a pantry shelf 1-6 months in dry weather. In very hot, humid weather, it's a good idea to keep mix in refrigerator.
Sylvia's comments: I mixed this up in my Osterizer stand mixer instead of hand-cutting or using a food processor. I did have to manually turn it against the way it wanted to go a few times, but that was it. I used a very low speed. I have used this substitute in a biscuit recipe, and it worked fine.
