To make the biscuit mix

    2. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 months.
To make biscuits
  1. Combine biscuit mix and soymilk in a mixing bowl until the mix is completely moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead it 4-5 times. Roll dough out to a 3/4 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter.
  3. Place cut biscuits onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 9-10 minutes, until tops are lightly browned.

Notes: Double, triple or quadruple the recipe to have enough on hand whenever you want to make biscuits.
