Sourdough Biscuits


This summer, I'm been playing around with some sourdough recipes. Here's one you make from an "unfed" starter that's pretty delicious with honey or homemade apple butter. 

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup "unfed" sourdough starter (Recipe HERE)
1/2 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add sourdough starter, and buttermilk. Mix with fork until dough forms a ball. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 10-12 times. Pat the dough into a 3/4" thick circle. Cut with 2 1/2" floured biscuit cutter. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter. Makes 12-15 biscuits.
