  • Step 2: Mix in shortening Use a fork or pastry blender to mix in the shortening.

  • Step 3: Put into a container Put the mixture into a container, put the lid on, and store it in a cool dry place.
  • Step 4: Use within 2 months Use the baking mix within two months to keep ingredients from spoiling. Use as you would any other baking mix and enjoy a quick hot stack of pancakes or biscuits any time you want.
