I have been making Linda’s Sourdough Biscuits for a few years now and have posted the recipe for them before. However, I had not posted the recipe in the Yummly format. As I wanted some for breakfast, I made up another batch and took pictures for a post with the recipe formatted.
I preheated the oven to 425 F.
I put the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl and combine. For this batch, I replaced 1/4 of the flour with whole wheat flour. It depends on whether you like whole wheat or not. I switch back and forward with using only all purpose flour and substituting some whole wheat.
I put the butter in and cut it with a pastry blender (you can use two knives) until it is crumbly with small pieces of butter remaining.
Then I add the sourdough starter and mix just until it is a raggy dough that is starting to hold together.
Flour a counter well and turn the dough onto it. Knead the dough 10 times and press it out until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough into circles with a biscuit cutter or a floured glass.
Put the biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Cook for 12 to 15 minutes until the biscuits are nicely browned.
I love these biscuits. They have that nice biscuit flavour with just a touch of a bread texture and a nice sourdough undernote. They are a regular here.
