I love biscuits, especially flaky homemade biscuits. We’ve been challenging ourselves to eat from the abundance we have on hand which includes homemade biscuits. I have a sourdough starter going all the time. It doesn’t take much time to maintain and I love sourdough biscuits.
This recipe makes about a dozen and I will usually keep four out for my husband and I and freeze the rest. That way I always have them on hand. This week I had to make a new batch. So despite the fact that we are eating from the freezer I am actually going to be putting a few biscuits back in the freezer!
Amazing Sourdough Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup cold butter
1 cup Sourdough Starter
½ cup buttermilk
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine Sourdough Starter and buttermilk, str into crumb mixture with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead 10-12 times. Roll to ½ inch thickness. Cut with a floured 2 ½ inch biscuit cutter.
Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
If desired you can brush them with melted butter at this point. Remove from the baking pan to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 1 dozen.
