I love to bake bread and was very eager to try out the sourdough starter that my friend offered. After baking a bunch of sourdough recipes I have been mostly dumping the starter and feeding it every week since fitting in the long rising time seems to be hard right now. So, when I saw this recipe I was all smiles since it makes use of the unfed starter from the fridge and the waiting time is not much. The first time I made it, I burnt half of it because I did not keep a close eye at the end and blindly followed the 20 minutes mentioned in the original recipe.
The next time I forgot to add salt . The best part is that the biscuits were totally gone even with the flaws. They were pretty good . This is going to be my go to recipe to use up the starter in the fridge from now on. Off to the recipe. Recipe from here.
- whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
- salt - 1/4 tsp
- sourdough starter - 1/2 cup (unfed)
- butter - 2 tbsp
- herbs - 1 tbsp (dry)
- oil - for brushing
Mix all ingredients except oil and form a soft dough. Flatten the dough and wrap with cling wrap. Place in refrigerator for 30 min to a couple of hours until the dough firms up.
Lightly flour a parchment paper, rolling pin and top of dough. Place dough on the parchment paper and roll to a thickness of about 1/16th inch.
Brush rolled dough with oil and cut using a pizza cutter into 1 1/4th inch squares. Prick each square with a fork. Transfer the parchment paper and dough to a baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated 400F oven for about 10 - 15 minutes until the squares start to brown around the edges. Keep an eye as these tend to burn easily.
When done, transfer to a cooling rack.
You can add any choice of dry herbs or seeds. I added caraway seeds and totally loved the flavor.
