Buttermilk Biscuit Mix

8 cups All-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups buttermilk blend powder
4 Tbsp baking powder
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/3 cups shortening (1lb block)

In a bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients; cut in shortening until crumbly.  Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.  Yield:  about 13 cups

To make biscuits(8) I use 2 cups of mix and 1/2 cup of milk.  I don't usually roll them out.  I just pat them in to biscuit shapes being careful not to over handle.  Bake at 450 degrees for about 6-8 minutes.
