Homemade "Bisquick" Mix

So I wanted to make Chicken Pot Pie tonight. Well "make" might not be the right word as I had it prepped in my freezer so I just had to make the topping and bake it. I didn't have Bisquick and I am not about to go out to the store with two kids for one item, so I decided to make it from scratch. I found a recipe and figured I would give it a try.

Here is the recipe:

Homemade Bisquick Mix

2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp shortening


Mix until crumbly (I used a pastry cutter).

For my recipe, I used the 2 cups of "Bisquick" mix (what the recipe above yielded), 1 cup of milk, and 2 eggs. Here's what it looked like:

It wasn't just as good as it normally is, it was better. I will definitely be using this mix in lieu of Bisquick since it was cheaper and had less additives and turned out tastier. Hope you enjoy!
