Flavor was delish, but mine had a serious case of the fall-aparts. I use whole grain flour and lard in place of margarine, so was probably my own fault. Won't ding the recipe when I didn't follow it to the letter. I cut the fat into the flour mixture with the food processor, pulsed in the starter, and finished mixing by hand. Patted this out, then cut into 8 square biscuits cause I'm lazy like that. Will make these again, and try to fidget with my substitute ingredients to get them to hold together better. Thanks for sharing.

These are so good and easy! I've tried some of the more difficult sourdough biscuits and rolls, but these are better. <br/>You can use organic flour or whole wheat, whatever strikes your fancy.<br/>I make these delicious bisquits at least once a week now.

My family and I didn't like these at all. There is a lot more baking powder in this recipe than in other biscuit recipes I've tried, and I think that may have been why these had such a bitter flavor. I've used my sourdough starter in many other recipes with great success, so I don't believe there's anything wrong with it.<br/><br/>The texture was good, I will say that about these biscuits.

I have made these a few times now. They are perfect when I have sourdough to use up. The stuff that should be discarded, but I feed it and use it to make these. I have been making them drop biscuit style. A couple times I added shredded cheddar to the dough before dropping them.

I would like to thank the gal that so generously shared her grandma's recipe with us. These biscuits are absolutely the BEST sourdough biscuits I've ever had! THANK YOU!!!!!! <br/>They mix up in just a matter of minutes and are beautiful When they come out of the oven. <br/>Side note: They just passed the "Husband Test", flying colors!

This is recipe has become my go to biscuit recipe. I baked mine in a cast iron Dutch oven on our patio in a wood fire in our chimina. I was looking for a sourdough biscuit recipe to use in a Dutch oven when I am camping. The wood fire gives something to the flavor of the biscuit. This recipe is a real smile generator.

I made these last night to have with my "carbo loading" dinner (running 15 miles today), alongside my super veggie-full spaghetti. They turned out perfect. I got 6 biscuits and the last 3 minutes I topped each with some asiago cheese. Turned out FANTASTIC!

Will definitely make these again.

I used to hate having to throw away a cup of starter every time I "fed" it - now I don't have to! This recipe puts that excess starter to good use, and it produces some of the lightest, fluffiest biscuits I've ever made! Thank you for sharing Grandma's recipe! :-)

Hooray for Grandma, this is a fast and delicious recipe. I tend to make 7 instead of 8 so that they are a little bigger. Warm from the oven with real butter, hard to stop eating them.

Tasty, delicious, delightful. Reminded me of a cross between a biscuit and a dinner roll. Lovely with a drizzle of honey or alone.
