    pollen's Note:

    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! ;)

      Thank you for this excellent recipe! My first batch just came out of the oven and I can't believe how tasty these biscuits are. Another sourdough success story! Instead of all purpose flour, I used white whole wheat flour, but the biscuits still came out light and tender with a nice crispy crust. I let the dough sit for about 30 minutes to allow the sourdough to do its magic before I kneaded it. Give your grandma a kiss for me! :-) Cathy B.

      I am eating them straight out of the oven and the texture is delicate and soft. The sourdough flavor is subtle. I followed the recipe to a T and they came out so well I would serve them to guests. I let the last few set for 30 minutes and the sourdough flavor is much stronger. Do this only if you love sourdough.
