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

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Stir together the flour, powered milk, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter and shortening into the dry mixture until blended thoroughly.
  4. Fold in the buttermilk until the dough comes together.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and use hands to press into a circle 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.
