Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400°F, then line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set it aside. In a food processor, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, then pulse them until combined, add the cold butter slices, and pulse with 1-second intervals until well incorporated.

Step 2

In a separate small mixing bowl, add the sourdough bread scraps, heavy cream, and vanilla extract, then stir them together until uniform, and pour it over the flour mixture. Pulse them again until combined and dough forms, then transfer it to your clean work surface, and form it into a round shape.

Step 3

Fold it in half, then gently flatten, rotate, fold in half, and flatten again, repeat these steps about 4-5 more times working quickly. Smoothen the rough-shaped dough making sure it’s about 1 inch thick, then cut it into 8 evenly, and place them on the prepared baking sheet spaced at least 2 inches apart evenly.

Step 4

You can brush each biscuit with more cream at the top, then lightly sprinkle some sugar, and then place the baking sheet in the middle rack of the preheated oven. Allow the biscuits to bake for about 15 to 16 minutes until the edges are light golden brown, then let them cool for at least 10 minutes, and serve. Enjoy!
