Home » Celebrating National Biscuit Day!
According to some Internet calendars, May 29th is National Biscuit Day. We just had National Buttermilk Biscuit Day on May 14th, but I’m not complaining about celebrating biscuits again. 😊
I realize that a “biscuit” can mean different things to different people, but for me, buttery and flaky biscuits are what I think about when I hear the word. What does “biscuit” mean to you?
To celebrate, I decided to make biscuits using my sourdough discard. I’ve been making the heck out of sourdough, and this is one of the ways I’ve been using my discard. I love the challenge of making sure that none of my starter goes to waste!
The other way I use my discard is for savory pancakes. Did you see my kimchi pancake from a few days ago? It was so good! (By the way, if you’ve been baking sourdough and have an interesting use for your unfed/discard starter, I’d love to hear about it! 🙋🏻♀️ I’m on the lookout for more ways to use my discard, and all ideas are welcome! 🤗)
On this National Biscuit Day, how do you plan to celebrate? If you think of biscuits the same way I do, you could bake some buttery biscuits and spread them with jam or jelly. I’ve even made “cat head” biscuits in the past and turned them into strawberry shortcakes. Or if biscuits are more like cookies and crackers to you, maybe a shortbread biscuit would be a tasty treat for today.
Enjoy your biscuits! 💖
