Sourdough Biscuits Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sourdough starter
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons lard or butter, cold, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 10-inch cast-iron skillet and set aside.



In large bowl, mix together all ingredients, except melted butter, until soft dough forms.

Pinch off egg-sized pieces and roll between palms to form a ball. Place dough balls, touching, around edge of skillet in concentric circles until filled. Brush tops with melted butter. Set skillet in warm spot for 10 minutes to allow biscuits to rise.
