The COMPLETE SOURDOUGH COOKBOOK
DON AND MYRTLE HOLM
The CAXTON PRINTERS, Ltd
Miss Mary Rogers of Mexico, Missouri Biscuits
1/2 cup starter 1 tbsp. sugar
1 cup milk 3/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups flour 2 tsps. baking powder
1/3 cup shortening 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
At bedtime make a batter of the half-cup starter, cup of milk, and
1 cup of the flour. Let set overnight if biscuits are wanted for
breakfast. If wanted for noon, the batter may be mixed early in
the morning and set in a warm place to rise. However, unless the
weather is real warm, it is always all right to let it ferment
overnight. It will get very light and bubbly. When ready to mix
the biscuits, sift together the remaining cup and a half of flour
and all other dry ingredients, except the baking soda. Work in
shortening with fingers or a fork. Add the sponge, to which the soda,
dissolved in a little warm water, has been added. Mix to a soft dough.
Knead lightly a few times to get in shape. Roll out to about 1/2-inch
thickness or a little more, and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place close
together in a well-greased 9x13 inch pan, turning to grease tops. Cover
and set in a warm place to rise for about 45 minutes. Bake in a 375 oven
for 30 to 35 minutes.

Everybody who has tried these has liked them very much. :^)
From: Life is real?
"email@example.com" is my brother Brad (Hi Brad!), who
shared the MMRMM (for short) biscuit recipe with me awhile back, and I
I can only concur that these biscuits are the best I've ever eaten. My
only adjustment to the recipe is that I roll the dough a little
thicker than him, closer to an inch thick, then I just use my
dough blade to cut out a bunch of square biscuits (press...don't saw!).
I make them about 2" square and they turn out very professionally...just
like you get at the best breakfast restaurants. Remember, use plenty
of flour all over the place...to give them that "home cooked" look, and
to give you something to do while they are baking, i.e. clean up the
I also guarantee these to be the best biscuits you've ever eaten...if
you don't like them...my wife will eat worms! (Reminicent of one of
the early "Joe Isuzu" commercials...haha).
