Fluffy Sourdough Biscuits :

    Whisk together in first bowl:
  • 1 Cup Active Sourdough Starter
  • 1 Cup warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • In bowl two mix:

  • 2.5 cups all purpose flour and 2 teaspoons salt
  • Then all at once to bowl one add:

  • 1 Tablespoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • It will bubble up and foam immediately. Stir gently, and as it bubbles, QUICKLY add the contents of bowl two. With large spoon stir until ingredients come together and working quickly:

Pour out on a floured surface and knead in any extra flour you require, but keep this dough sticky : Knead approximately 15 times. Roll out with rolling pin very thick for biscuits, cut with biscuit cutter or knife. The dough will be coated on the outside with flour, but sticky on the inside, so dip your cutter into flour each time to keep it from sticking to the dough. It is extra nice to brush melted butter on the tops of the biscuits before baking or dip the whole biscuit in melted butter. On a greased baking sheet, bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Serve with lots of fresh butter. These biscuits must be handled quickly and gently so as not to degas the dough. Makes approximately 12 - 15 biscuits.
