Sour Dough Biscuits

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.
