Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/3 cup powdered milk
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) cold butter, cut into bits, plus 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Stir together the flour, powdered milk, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut the chilled butter bits 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 your hands to press it into a circle measuring 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, about 15 minutes.
