    I've been doing this for some time now and it is so much tastier! I began making my own as it was much healthier but I love being able to adjust it to make it your own :) Great tip!

  3. If you use butter instead of shortening do you need to store it in the fridge?

    Thanks! :)

  4. Sorry...one more question. Is there a difference between milk powder and powdered milk? I've heard some people say there is a difference and others say there's not.

  5. I'm not sure. I use butter, and I store it refrigerated. I'd say to stay on the safe side and refrigerate. :)

  6. Glad to answer questions! I'm not sure if they're technically the same thing, but in this case, I'm using the terms interchangeably. Sorry for any confusion and thanks for asking! :)

  7. I saw your comment on Marilyn treats and your link to this post. I am so glad to find it.
    I love Bisquick and the gluten free Bisquick but not all the chemicals. Pinning this recipe and linking it to my Bisquick quiche post where I said I wish I had a recipe to make my own. Thanks so much
