I make biscuits from scratch. They’re too easy to cheat. My friend made a crustless quiche that was really fantastic, so I asked for the recipe, and it included biscuit mix. Since I had no intention of using a whole box, I looked up a recipe. Easy peasy. I only made .83 of the original recipe, because who needs 11 cups of biscuit mix? Crazy!
You will need
¾ cup, 1 Tbsp, and 1 tsp organic flour ($4.99 per 5 lb, $4.99/80 oz = $.06 x 4.58oz = $.29)
2 tsp baking powder ($1.79 per 10oz, $1.79/59.06tsp = $.03 x 2tsp = $.06)
½ tsp sugar ($2.99 per 5 lb, $2.99/80oz = $.04 x .08oz = less than $.01)
1/8 tsp salt ($.47 per 26oz, $.47/30.69tsp = .02 x .125tsp = less than $.01)
1 Tbsp and 2 tsp vegetable oil ($2.79 per 32fl.oz, $2.79/32fl.oz = $.09 x .83fl.oz = $.07)
Mix all the powdered ingredients together in a bowl. Add vegetable oil and mix it in with your fingers till it feels crumbly.

|Vegetable oil feels so soft and lovely when you're mixing it into the flour.|
The quiche turned out wonderfully. I can’t speak for making actual biscuits from this stuff, I imagine they are passable, but why not make real ones?
$.43 for about .78cup, or $.55/cup
$3.79 for a 40oz (8.75 cups) box of Jiffy Biscuit Baking mix, or $.43/cup
