Sourdough Cheddar Biscuits

 

These sourdough cheddar biscuits are fluffy, tangy, rich, and of course, cheesy. Add the optional garlic powder and it will remind you of those famous restaurant garlic-cheddar biscuits.


Ingredients:

  • ½ cup cold lard or butter, cut into small chunks
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sourdough starter
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, optional
  • ½ cup (packed) shredded sharp cheddar

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the dough ahead of time. Cut lard into the flour until it is in small pieces. Stir in the starter, sweetener, and milk until a soft dough just comes together. Cover and place in a warm spot for 7-12 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine salt, baking powder, baking soda, black pepper, and garlic powder in a very small bowl until evenly mixed. Sprinkle dry mixture over fermented dough, add cheese, and knead until it comes together into a cohesive, soft mass.
  3. Roll the dough out to ½-inch thick. Cut with 2- to 3-inch biscuit cutter and place the biscuits in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet, one next to another.
  4. Bake 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown on the top and bottom. Serve hot with butter or drippings.
