DIRECTIONS

  • Position oven rack in the middle of the oven; preheat to 450°; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pulse the flour, buttermilk powder, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a food processor to combine, about 3 pulses.
  • Scatter the butter and shortening evenly over the top and continue to pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 15 pulses.
  • Transfer the flour mixture to a big bowl; stir in the milk with a rubber spatula until the dough comes together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface; lightly flour your hands and the dough, and knead the dough gently until uniform, about 30 seconds.
  • Roll the dough into a 10 inch round, about 1 inch thick.
  • Using a floured 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter, stamp (don't twist) out 12 biscuits, gently patting the dough scraps back into a uniform 1-inch thick piece as needed.
  • Arrange biscuits upside down on the prepared baking sheet, spaced about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 5 minutes; rotate the pan, decrease heat to 400°, and continue to bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack, let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.
