Sourdough Butter Biscuits

The best way to have your biscuits come out perfect, light & fluffy is to use sourdough starter in the ingredients.

Sourdough Butter Biscuits : Makes 6 – 8 biscuits.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of real butter — warmed to room temperature
  • 1 cup of sourdough starter (matured)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a medium to large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt.
  • Cut the butter into the sifted ingredients. I use two butter knives to evenly “cut” the butter through the mixture.
  • Fold in your sourdough starter. Mix well.
  • Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead together until no longer “sticky”
  • Gently roll your dough keeping fairly thick.
  • Cut your biscuits out with a biscuit cutter. I use a canning jar ring, regular size.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12 min or until golden brown

This makes some of the lightest biscuits perfect for any side, meal or with jam & butter.

Adding in herbs, garlic, cinnamon or other spices creates wonderful variations as well.
