3 cups all-purpose flour

5 Tbsp. butter, softened

1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. salt

Combine flour, salt, and baking powder! I like to use a whisk to mix it all in well.

Store biscuit mix in an airtight container for 2-3 months, preferably in the refrigerator or the freezer.  A large quart mason jar makes an excellent container for your mix, it is a good size  and looks pretty too! Trace a piece of scrapbook paper and tuck it between the rim and lid for a quick label.
