Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Cut into small pieces and place into the freezer on a small plate to chill

6 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. shortening.

Mix together and set aside to curdle

1 cup milk

1 tbsp. white vinegar (or lemon juice).  

Whisk (or sift) together

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. kosher salt.

Cut the chilled fats into the flour mixture, then stir in curdled milk until a loose shaggy dough forms.  Turn out onto a floured surface and need a few times (the business letter fold is useful here).  Pat out in 1.5″ disc, then cut with a biscuit cutter.

Baked 15-20 minutes.  When biscuits are done, paint with 2 tbsp. melted butter, and return to the oven under the broiler until tops are golden.
