  • 9 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups shortening, softened

In large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and ad the softened shortening.  Cut in until the mixture resembles very fine crumbs.  Divide the mix into four equal portions of 4 1/2 cups each.  Place in airtight containers and store in a cool, dry place for up to two months.  Or place in freezer containers and freeze for up to six months.

To use:  all the mix to come to room temperature.
