    This really appeals to me. I will have to find a substitute for Bisquick as I haven't seen it in the stores here in Kuwait. I'll keep looking though. Looks to be a treat made for Sunday afternoon football.

      Found one, so its on the Sunday afternoon snack menu!

      These two 'small portion' ones are about the same
      Small portion - about 1 cup -
      Small portion - about 1 cup -

      About 6 cups -
      This last one uses unsalted butter in stead of shortening or oil.

      I think I'll try using butter as sub just to see what its like.
