1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (as in Hershey's)

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup finely chopped pecans

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate mini chips

In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

Using a pastry blender or two kitchen-knifes, cut in the butter till the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the pecans and chocolate chips.

Store in refrigerator in two plastic bags, 2 cups of mix in each. Seal tightly.

Make about 4 cups of mix.

To Use The Mix:

Preheat oven to 425ºF.

Place 2 cups (1 bag) of the mix in a medium bowl.


1/3 cup milk

Stir just until a soft dough forms.

On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness.

Use a 2-inch diameter biscuit cutter to cut out 12 biscuits. Transfer to a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or till bottoms are lightly browned.

Serve warm.

Makes 12 biscuits per batch.

1-1/4 cups milk

1 teaspoon basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

6 ounces (1-1/2 cups) shredded Cheddar cheese

2 cups hot mashed potatoes

Cook mushrooms and onions in 2 tablespoons Miracle Whip over medium heat. Add flour and seasonings; mix with whisk to smooth. Gradually milk to make a smooth texture, and cook, stirring with wire whisk till thick.

Stir in the other 1 cup of Miracle Whip, turkey, vegetables and 1 cup of the cheese. Cook 5 minutes, stirring.

Spoon mixture into a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish.

Stir the 1/2 cup Miracle Whip into hot potatoes. Top casserole with potato mixture.

Broil till golden. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; broil till cheese begins to melt. Serve.
