If you don't own a pastry blender, you can use 2 kitchen knives to cut the shortening into the flour mixture.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar.

Cut shortening into dry mixture with a pastry blender until mealy.

Make a well in the center of the mixture and add milk, stir to blend. Put out onto a lightly floured pastry board and knead 8 times. Roll out and cut with a cookie cutter.

Place on cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 400°F for 12 minutes.

Serve warm.
