"These are referred to as fake sourdough biscuits, but are really refrigerator rolls. Very easy to make, and so handy."

I wish I could give this recipe more stars! It is easy to make, and the dough stays great in the fridge for days. I made the dough on the weekend, and used it 5 days later, and the end result was a huge hit! I didn't have buttermilk, so I used some vinegar in regular milk, and it was fine. Thanx for a wonderful recipe!
I had some problems with this recipe, mostly my own fault. I tried to make it in the food processor, like I do with my other biscuit recipe, and I cannot stress enough what a BAD idea that was. This recipe makes more of a batter than a dough. I turned it out onto the counter to knead it...don't do it. Just a sticky gluey mess. I scraped it into a bowl and spooned it into a muffin tin. It took about 25 minutes to bake, and was more like a muffin than a biscuit. It was a tasty muffin, but not a biscuit like texture at all. I think if I made it again in the future (not a given) that I would mix it with the standing mixer and add probably another cup and a half to 2 cups of flour, or cut the buttermilk back by half. My son liked it.
I cut this recipe in half, because I didn't think I would want as many as it made - boy, was that a mistake! I'm not a big fan of sourdough, so I like these because they are not very sour, and no fussing with a starter! They are so easy to make, and the texture is wonderful - very light and fluffy. The dough IS sticky, but just put a lot of flour down to knead it. It's great that you can keep the dough on hand in the fridge for fresh bread when you want it!
For sure I'll use this recipe again! I used it to make hamburger buns in the end so I cut way back on the sugar. Also I added a couple of Tbls olive oil, garlic powder, and rosemary. The texture and taste were out of this world! Try it with salmon burger patties...Mmmmmmm
This recipe makes really good biscuits if you follow the directions differently. I halved the recipe and I mixed the yeast water and sugar togeather, then cut in the butter and soda, salt, and powder. Then I added the two and a half cups of flower and added buttermilk until the dough became doughy. It kneeded well and I let it rise for an hour before rolling it out and making biscuits. The end result was airy and light rolls that would have tasted a lot like real sourdough biscuits IF the sugar content had been less. I will make this recipe again and I encourage others to try as well.
I gave it 4 stars only because like some other folks found it too thin no problem just add a tad bit more flower and bring it closer to bread dough.Then kneed fold and roll or whitch ever you prefer.keeps good and darn tasty.Be brave and use full receipe you,ll be glad you did.Ps love the texture.
Real easy...couldn't wait for the dough to "cool down" much though. It still worked out really good. Family loved them. I made a 1/2 batch to try out. Will definitely have to make full batch (or more). I used a 9x13 pan to put the flour in to knead dough and shape. :) made clean up a lot easier. I sprayed tops w/butter before baking. They turned out super great
Thanks, I really enjoy the receipes as I like to create a variety of meals/foods for the family.
These are wonderful you can make your dough in the morn and cook the bisciuts for dinner.
