Sourdough Biscuits

Yield 2 dozen


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 1/2 cups prepared Sourdough
  • Starter (at room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • Sourdough Starter

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add Sourdough Starter; stir until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 10 to 12 times.

  2. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls, and place in a well-greased 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking pan. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter. Cover and let rise 1 hour and 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
