Sourdough Biscuits, Thanks Linda

DSCF3979

Our friend, Linda, kindly gave me the recipe for her sourdough biscuits. Normally you have to wrestle someone to get a recipe this good. Thanks, Linda.

So, I got Sam, my sourdough starter out and gave him a workout.
They are quite easy to make.

The ingredients are:

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup margarine
1 cup sourdough starter

Preheat oven to 425 F. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut the margarine in with a pastry blender or two knives until it is the size of peas. Add the sourdough starter and mix just until it starts to hold together. Don’t worry about a few loose bits. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead 10 times. Flatten to 3/4 inch. Cut biscuits and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

The Verdict

These are excellent biscuits. They have a crispy golden crust with a soft fluffy interior. They hold together better than baking powder biscuits and would be good for breakfast sandwiches and could even be toasted later. There is not a strong sourdough taste but there is a slight sourdough aftertaste. These will become a regular in my kitchen. I will do a video of making these later.
