Recipes from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 1966 - 1972

8 cups flour (2 lbs.)
3 tsp. double acting baking powder (Calumet)
4 tsp. salt
1 cup powdered milk (regular or skim)
3/4 cup shortening

Combine all the dry ingredients until well mixed.  Cut in the shortening with two knives or a pastry blender.  Blend until mixture looks like coarse corn meal.  Store covered in refrigerator or freezer.  Use as you would "Bisquick".
