Sourdough Biscuits THM–Crossover

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.

Sourdough Biscuits

  • 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. Biscuits baked on a stoneware pan are incredible.

*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.

  1. Should this read repeat from ** twice? Repeating just the rolling and folding parts?

    ” *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. ”

    Thanks!

  2. Glenda, Is this on plan with THM as written? Wouldn’t it need to ferment in the fridge for at least 70 hours or also have some time on the counter in addition to the 24 hours on the fridge? Or am I missing something?

    • When you make recipes with sourdough starter all you need is 7 hours room temperament. The reason is because you have larger amount of sourdough starter versus a little bit of yeast.

  3. Is there a way to freeze these before they are fully cooked? Made these today & they were delicious.
