Sourdough Cheddar and Chive Biscuits



Here's a recipe that adds to my basic sourdough biscuits. Delicious with soup or steak and beans. 

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
1 cup "unfed" sourdough starter (Recipe HERE)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 cup dried chives.

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, buttermilk, cheese, and chives. 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.
