  • 1/2 C butter unsalted
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1.5 C all purpose flour
  • 1 C sourdough starter discard room temperature
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In your mixer, combine the butter, sugar, salt and flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add in the sourdough starter, baking powder and baking soda and mix just until combined. The dough will come together with just a few crumbs in the bottom of the mixer bowl.
  • Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface.. pat with your hands 1/2" thick (shape doesn't matter). Fold the dough into thirds like you would a letter to create a rough triangle. Pat the dough to 1/2" again, and repeat the folding process. Pat the dough out for the third time to 1" thickness and the fold like a letter again.
  • Using a biscuit cutter or floured glass, cut or punch out as many biscuits as you can do. Do not twist as you cut. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet 1-2" apart. Gather the scraps, fold into thirds about 1" thick, then cut out more biscuits.
  • Bake the biscuits at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until light brown.
