In a spiral mixer, combine bread and pastry flour, Red Star Replacit Mlk bread and Red Star Double-Acting Baking Powder and blend on low for 30 seconds. Then, add salt and sugar and blend until combined. Next, cut in shortening and incorporate the dry ingredients until mixture resembles course streusel or crumbs.


Add cold water (or milk), as well as, eggs and continue to blend until mixture is combined. Avoid overmixing. Next, roll out dough to a 1/2 in (12.7 mm) thickness on a lightly dusted bench. Using a round biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place onto a baking tray.


Place into a preheated 450°F (232°C) oven and bake until golden brown. Take care to ensure biscuit bottoms do not get too dark. Remove from oven, let cool.
