Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sourdough Starter (see recipe below)*
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Melted butter (optional)
  • Dillseed or dried herb (optional)

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Sourdough Starter and cooking oil.
  2. Add the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring until mixture is just combined. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, flouring the cutter after each biscuit.
  3. Transfer biscuits to a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. If you like, brush with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with dillseed or dried herb. Serve warm. Makes 12 biscuits.

Note

  • * Measure cold Sourdough Starter into a 2-cup measure; let stand for 30 minutes before using.
