Why is it that when I go to do a search for a biscuit recipe, all the recipes call for Bisquick? I’m typing up our biscuit recipe for somebody, and was having some issues typing the instructions (I’ll post it here when I’m done). Our recipe right now is just a list of ingredients, a temperature, and a time to bake them, but I needed a better explanation. Since the recipe is similar to the Betty Crocker recipe, I headed to their site.
I am so disappointed. I expected to find a from-scratch recipe, but I can’t find one. Almost every single basic biscuit recipe I find calls for Bisquick. Sure, that’s easy, but we don’t generally keep that in the house (and on the rare occasion we do have it, it’s a homemade version).
Why is everything so instant today? With a million and a half recipes out there on the internet, why are the easiest to find the ones that aren’t actually from scratch?
Now. . .if I could just find a way to make the delicious biscuits WITHOUT using shortening, and using a better fat. . .
