1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon table salt

2 TB milk

56 grams sourdough discard (cold)

Notes

Adapted from cooksillustratedhttps://www.americastestkitchen.com/cooksillustrated/articles/2388-quarantinystarter-recipe-sourdough-discard-drop-biscuits

* These are very tender and light

* Oil will give a more tender crumb

* My biscuits finished in about 8 minutes

* Easily made vegan (would probably work well with gf flour)
