I obtained this recipe from a friend when we were exchanging sourdough recipes a few years ago. These soft biscuits are best enjoyed straight from the oven.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 1 cup Sourdough Starter
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- Additional butter, melted
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine Sourdough Starter and buttermilk; stir into crumb mixture with a fork until dough forms a ball.
- Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead 10-12 times. Roll to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
- Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 dozen.
