Homemade Bisquick Mix

Many imported items are expensive to buy in Costa Rica. One of these items is Bisquick Mix from General Mills. I searched the web and found this recipe that was published in the Kansas City Star food section years ago. Try this simple recipe and you’ll never buy the boxed Bisquick Mix again.

6 cups of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons of baking poweder
1 tablespoon of salt
1 cup of vegetable shortening (think Crisco). In Costa Rica, I buy Clover brand "Manteca Vegetal"

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt 3 times into a large bowl.
Cut the shortening in with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, or sand.
Store the mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 months.
Use as a substitute in any recipe that calls for Bisquick.

  1. Thank-you so much for the heads up on what shortening is called down here. I've been buying little cans of Crisco but I KNEW Ticas used something else since Crisco isn't usually sold in larger quantities.
