Method

How to make Biscuits

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.
