Grandma's Sourdough Biscuits

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by pollen

My grandma makes these every time we go over for dinner. I got my starter from her, so I too make these every couple weeks when I need to use up some starter. They are really fast and easy, and taste delicious right out of the oven.

Amazing and simple recipe, why fix something when it's not broken? I always have sourdough starter bubbling on top of my fridge. So I just had to make these... plus I don't eat pork but I love some biscuits and gravy but know I'll have to make it myself to be sure there's no pork in it, so today was the day! <br/>Tip: After years of cutting cold butter into various recipes for apple pie crust and such, I learned that taking the butter out of the fridge and just using a cheese grater that you can clean easily is the best way to incorporate cold butter into any dough recipe. No "cutting" required. In my 20's it was ok, but now I get sore after that kind of a workout! ;)
