  • Cooking Time15 mins
  • Serves16
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/3 cup powdered milk
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon ground sage, finely chopped
1/2 cup or 1 stick cold butter, cut into bits
1/2 cup shortening, cold
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 stick melted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees C.

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

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

4. Stir in the buttermilk so the dough comes together.

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

7. Bake in the oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
