Sourdough Biscuits
# From: Deborah Branton


The following recipe makes delicious sourdough biscuits, preferred at
our house over the buttermilk variety.
 
                 S O U R D O U G H   B I S C U I T S
 
2 c. flour                     1/2   t. salt
1 T. sugar                     1/2   c. margarine
2 t. baking powder             1 - 2 c. starter
 
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.  Cut in the margarine as you
would for regular biscuits.  Stir in one cup of the starter, adding
more as you need to get a ball of dough.  Turn onto a lightly floured
board or cloth, and knead very lightly.  Roll dough one-half inch
thick, and cut into small rounds.  Place them on a cookie sheet, and
bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for about 12 minutes.
 
                                           Yield:  10 - 12 biscuits
 
COMMENTS:  Part of the flour can be whole-wheat.  Butter can be
substituted for the margarine, and I have successfully made them
using 1/4 cup of margarine and 1/4 cup of peanut oil.  I always make
these without the salt.
