Caramelized Onion Sourdough Biscuits

Tangy sourdough and sweet onions make a perfect taste combination in these delicious biscuits. Makes about 8 2 1/2" biscuits.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoons organic butter
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon muscavado sugar (or other brown sugar)
  • 1 cup sprouted red or white wheat flour (if using sprouted einkorn flour, increase flour amount by 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cold, unsalted organic butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 1 cup (9 oz.) sourdough starter, unfed
  1. Combine the butter, onion, and sugar in a pan set over medium-low heat. Cook the onions, covered, for about 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes; they should be nicely caramelized. Transfer the onions to a bowl, cool to room temperature, then refrigerate at least 3 hours.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Work the butter into the flour until the mixture is unevenly crumbly. Toss in the chives and caramelized onions. Cut in the starter until the dough becomes cohesive.
     
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and fold it over on itself 5 or 6 times, until it comes together. Pat out to a 1" thickness. Using a sharp biscuit cutter, cut biscuits. Gather scraps, pat out again and cut more biscuits. Bake biscuits for 15-18 minutes until just turning golden brown.

  • 2 1/2 cups sprouted lentil flour (or sprouted flour of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon each: baking soda, ground ginger, allspice, and lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
     
  2. Cream butter, sugar, and honey in a large bowl. Beat in the egg.
     
  3. Gradually sift the flour, salt, baking soda, ginger and allspice into the creamed mixture, stirring continuously. Add the lemon zest and mix thoroughly.
     
  4. Form the dough into 30 or so balls (about 1 rounded T. each). Space them about 1" apart on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a spatula. Sprinkle additional sugar on top. Bake for 10 minutes until the cookies are light brown. Cool on wire rack. Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional) for an extra zing.
