My cowboy husband always tells me about how his Mom made her own biscuits. He calls them Cat Head biscuits. I just call them good!
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- 2 teaspoons Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder ( Be sure it is fresh or the biscuits won’t rise)
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/4 cup (3 tablespoons) Bacon Drippings or unsalted Butter
- 1 cup Sour Dough Starter, at room temp (See starter recipe listed under the Bread catagory)
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Gradually add the bacon drippings. Make a hole in the center of the dough mix and pour the Sour Dough Starter in it. Mix well.
On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth. lay out the dough using a floured rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a glass or biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits. We usually get 5 good size biscuits. On a rimmed greased baking sheet, place all of the biscuits. You can brush a small amount of bacon drippings on top of the biscuits. Cover with a dis towel and place in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
Bake for 17 to 20 minutes depending on your oven, until the biscuits are golden brown. Serve with butter and honey.
