Delicious! My dough was pretty wet, so I had to knead in quite a lot of flour, but that probably had more to do with my starter than the recipe itself. Regardless, they turned out wonderful. This recipe is a keeper.

I rank this as one of the top 5 biscuits I have made. I am nursing some starter, and I was looking for some ways to feed my family's stomach v. the trash can for the starter discards. We had waffles this a.m. Found this recipe to use the discard for my p.m. feeding. These biscuits were divine. Thank you for this recipe.

These were my first sourdough biscuits, and they were AMAZING!!! They were fluffy inside, with lightly crisp outsides, and very filling. Thanks so much for this yummy recipe.

Easy and delicious! No more will I be at the mercy of having buttermilk in the fridge. Light and tender, yet sturdy enough for a sausage patty. I used butter flavored shortening and it worked fine. Will likely be using cold bacon fat for future batches. Very user friendly, my beater blade on my mixer did most of the work. Recipe has been saved for my personal cookbook of favorites.

This recipe is delicious. I also incorporated some sauteed mushrooms and raw green onion into the dough. Very tasty! I bet this would be great with some mushroom gravy on top.

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!
