Do you often catch yourself daydreaming of the perfect way to use up your discarded sourdough? It could just be me. But these savory sourdough scones/biscuits with delicious mature cheddar and chives were dreamt up in exactly such a scenario.
It breaks my heart a little bit to discard half of my sourdough baby down the drain every week. I painstakingly try to keep it alive, feeding it every 5 days or so between fridge hibernations. So I love trying to come up with new ways of using the discarded sourdough. See, for example, the recipe I did on sourdough crumpets
By the way, what is the difference between a savory scone and a biscuit? One’s from the UK and the other from the US, but is that all? I googled it, I took a detailed look at recipes. There doesn’t seem to be a huge difference? If you know, I’d love to know!
