Delicious soft Sourdough Biscuits add that special touch to a meal. These are a THM crossover because they contain both carbs (wheat flour) and fats (butter). I brushed these biscuits with melted garlic butter to mimic Red Lobster Biscuits. This biscuit dough can be mixed several days in advance and kept in the fridge. In fact I prefer working with cold dough as it handles much better.
- 2 ¼ cups white whole wheat flour, I used Arrowhead Mills Pastry Flour***
- 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2/3 cup sourdough starter
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
Combine whole wheat flour and butter in a mixer bowl. Mix until crumbly. Add milk and sourdough starter. Mix well. Place in a bowl, cover tightly and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator. *Sprinkle baking powder, salt, and baking soda on biscuit dough. Knead until thoroughly mixed. **Press dough out ½ inch thick, fold in thirds, press out again, repeat from * twice. Cut with a biscuit cutter and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degree for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
*An easy way to sprinkle on the baking powder mixture is to put it in a Pampered Chef Shaker.
**When you fold the dough multiple times you will get flaky layered biscuits.
***I used Arrowhead Mills Pastry flour which is made from soft white spring wheat berries. It has less gluten and makes wonderful biscuits. It is 100% whole grain flour.
For Red Lobster Biscuits: 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese maybe kneaded in the dough along with the baking powder mixture. Melt 3 tablespoons butter. Add 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 2 teaspoons parsley. Brush over biscuits when removed from oven.
