- 4 cups of flour
- 1 1/2 cups ground pork cracklings
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup of white wine
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tsps salt
- 1 pkg dry instant yeast (dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water and the tsp of sugar)
- 1 egg beaten for brushing
(Makes approx. 45 biscuits)
Mix the yeast together with water and sugar and set it aside.
Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl, add the yeast when it has completely risen and knead thoroughly until you get a medium soft dough.
Cover it with a dish cloth and let the dough rise in a warm area for about 2 hours.
Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a floured surface. Roll it out to a 3/4 inch thickness.
Score the dough with a sharp knife (be careful not to cut through it). With a round biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits.
Place them on a baking pan covered with baking paper. Brush the tops with beaten egg.
Bake at 400°F (205°C) for about 20-25 minutes or until light brown.
