Buttermilk Drop Biscuits Mix

Place in a gallon storage bag:
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cream of tartar

Needed to make biscuits:
3/4 cup butter (or 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening)
1-1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup whipping cream

Put mix in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add buttermilk and whipping cream all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Remove biscuits from baking sheet and serve immediately. Makes 12 biscuits.
