Hi. I wanted to share an easy no-fail biscuit recipe and what I make with it a post a few pix for you.
So, we are trying to cut costs and save $ by trying to make stuff from scratch as much as possible. We like biscuits and pizza, however, they can be pretty expensive for us to buy them as the store. So I make a basic biscuit mix that can be made into a lot of things like pizza crust, and strawberry shortcake for instance.
This is what I do:
I mix up the following dry ingredients and put them into an airtight container in my pantry. I double the recipe as I use the mix a lot.
* 3 cups of flour
* 1 Tablespoon of baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon salt
Sift all these dry ingredients if you have a sifter. If you are like me, and don't, just stir it around in a bowl for a bit so it is all mixed well.
Store in an airtight container.
To make pizza crust, biscuits, and cinnamon rolls:
*2 cups of dry mix *1 egg *1/4 cup of milk
* 3/4 cup of margarine *Extra flour
In large mixing bowl, add dry mix.
Fork in margarine to make a crumbly mix.
In small bowl beat egg and milk.
Make a well in flour margarine mix, and add egg and milk.
Fold mix around egg and milk to make a crumbly dough.
Knead in bowl, and add flour for sticking.
**For Pizza: Grease and Push dough into pizza pan. I can make a large 14 inch pizza with this.
Add topping, and I bake at 350 for about 35-40 min.
**For biscuits I have make drop biscuits and rolled them out cut them with a cookie cutter. I bake at 350 for about 15 min. They don't get real brown, just light gold.
**cinnamon rolls are done similar to the biscuits.
