You don’t have to buy baking mix at the store, you can make your own baking mix (Bisquick) and save money, make biscuits or pancakes like normal just add eggs and milk or we love chicken and dumplings so just use your baking mix and add milk for the dumplings

For every cup of baking mix that you need here are the ingredients, so you can double, triple, quadruple whatever you need to do
3/4 Cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 1/2 Tablespoons Shortening (the Crisco baking sticks make it easy to measure)
This makes one cup of “Bisquick”
Mix dry ingredients, cut in shortening by hand, or use a food processor if you have one, (I just pulse it a few times in my food processor). Store in an airtight container, I usually just make it as I need it but it can be done ahead of time. Make all the recipes that you would normally make with (Bisquick). You know this is fresh and hasn’t been sitting in a box for months and months. If you read the ingredients on a box of Bisquick it has added sugar and several other ingredients that I don’t even recognize. Probably preservatives so that it can keep for months and months, possibly years.
