Have you ever started a recipe and realized they were out of Bisquick? Surprisingly, it is very easy to make your own starter for foods such as pancakes, waffles, biscuits, dumplings and cobblers. I typically make as needed, but you can also make in advance and store in the refrigerator.
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup vegetable shortening (such as Crisco)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1. Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl.
2. Using a pastry cutter, cut in shortening to flour mixture until crumbly.
3. Ready to use in your next recipe!
