 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8      cups          all-purpose flour (or 4 cups each all-
                         purpose flour and whole wheat flour)
    2      tablespoons   baking powder
    1      tablespoon    salt
    2      teaspoons     cream of tartar
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    2      cups          dry nonfat milk
    2      cups          shortening
 Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl (if you have a large mixer it
 is ideal to use for blending this mix but it can also be done quite
 adequately using a pastry blender to cut in shortening). Add shortening
 about a half cup at a time mixing well after each addition. Mixture will be
 mealy when mixed adequately. Put in air-tight container and store either in
 refrigerator or at room temperature. Use within about 3 months.
