sunday morning strawberry biscuits.

to wake on a sunday morning, bathe, play beach house (this song, over and over) and bake sourdough strawberry biscuits while our children water the garden and my husband tests paint colors in our kitchen--- was it written somewhere long ago that this is where i would find myself?

Sourdough Biscuits with Strawberries
adapted from this recipe

1.5 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup (or more) loosely diced strawberries
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup cold, unfed sourdough starter discard

cut strawberries, sprinkle with brown sugar and set aside.  in a bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. add cut butter and mix with your fingertips until dough is pea-sized (like coarse crumbs) and combined.  add in strawberries (make sure they are not sitting in liquid as your dough will become sticky ~ blot dry if needed) gently using the folding technique with a wooden spoon or hands.  make sure the strawberries are coated in the flour and do not over mix. if some strawberries do not mix in, just (gently) place them back into the dough.  mix in sourdough discard with a wooden spoon and knead (gently) a few times until a ball forms. cover and let chill in fridge for about an hour.

preheat oven to 425.
roll out biscuit dough onto a floured work surface. using a pastry cutter (or even the top of a mason jar lid), cut dough into rounds about 3/4" thick. add more flour if dough is sticky. place on ungreased baking pan and bake around 12-15 minutes. sprinkle with brown sugar when straight out of the oven. serve with butter & honey and enjoy!
