Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 stick cold butter, cut into bits
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Stir together the flour, powered milk, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt in a medium bowl.

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

Fold in the buttermilk until 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 circles with a biscuit cutter or a glass. Place the biscuits in cast-iron skillets, then brush the tops with the melted butter.

Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
