Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Special equipment: a pastry cutter

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Stir together the flour, powdered milk, baking powder, sugar, salt, pepper, cream of tartar and sage in a medium bowl.

  • Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter and shortening into the dry mixture until blended thoroughly.

  • Stir in the buttermilk so the dough comes together.

  • On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and use hands to press into a circle 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.

  • Cut out the circles with a biscuit cutter or glass. Place the biscuits in cast-iron skillets, then brush the tops with the melted butter.

  • Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
