cream of tartar
cup + 2 tablespoons
melted butter for topping
Preheat oven to 400°.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.
Use a pastry cutter (or fork) to cut the shortening and butter into the dry ingredients.
Once the shortening and butter are in pea-sized pieces, add the egg and milk.
Stir until just combined.
Dump the biscuit dough onto a surface that has been dusted with flour.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough to about 1-inch thickness.
Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter or use a knife to cut into squares. (I use a 2 ½" biscuit cutter)
Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until a light golden brown.
Brush with melted butter, if desired. Enjoy warm!
*Can replace with additional butter
