I love biscuits, especially flaky homemade biscuits. We’ve been challenging ourselves to eat from the abundance we have on hand which includes these amazing sourdough biscuits. I have a sourdough starter going all the time. It doesn’t take much time to maintain and I love sourdough biscuits.

Sourdough Starter for 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.

Combine dry ingredients.

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.

Roll out and cut biscuits.

Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet.

Place biscuits on a baking sheet.

Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from the oven.

If desired you can brush them with melted butter at this point. Remove from the baking pan to a wire rack to cool.

Nothing is better on a hot biscuit than homemade jam.
