Sourdough Cheese Biscuits

Time for more of Linda’s Sourdough Biscuits. However, I wanted to try something different. I folded cheese in for Sourdough Cheese Biscuits.

I mixed the flours, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl.

I cut the cold butter into the flour with a pastry blender until the mixture was the size of peas.

I added the sourdough starter and mixed until it was a ragged dough.

I turned the dough out onto a floured counter and pressed it to 3/4 inch thick. I spread the cheese over the top of the dough.

I folded the dough in half and pressed it flat. I turned it a quarter turn, folded it in half and pressed it flat again. Repeat until you have pressed the dough flat ten times.

The Verdict

I love the combination of sourdough and cheese. There is a nice cheddar taste and the texture is moist and delicate. These will make the best breakfast sandwiches.
