Sourdough biscuits #1

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Proofed \"Sourdough Batter\"
2¼ cup Flour
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Butter or Crisco
½ cup Milk or buttermilk

These are light and sour. What more could you want of a biscuit than that?

Prepare your batter the night before. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl and cut in the butter using a pastry blender. The flour mixture should resemble a grainy mix, something like cornmeal. Mix the milk with the batter and stir into the dry ingredients. Knead on a board for about 30 seconds. Roll the dough out about ½ inch thick and cut into circles with a glass or biscuit cutter.

Place on a greased cookie sheet, giving the biscuits room to rise. Allow to rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter or milk and bake at 400ø for 15 minutes or until they are puffed and golden brown.
