I am not a big fan of fluffy biscuits - in fact I don't really like them, to be quite honest. I have a recipe that will absolutely set you free! Though it's not fluffy, it is a biscuit that you'll want to have around all the time - it comes from Ruth Rowan - a wonderful woman, 73 yrs. of age. She says they're great to have on hand if someone should stop by. They are good with any meal, with cheese/ham/bacon/jelly/honey/etc. or by themselves - and the very best part?! The recipe is QUICK and EASY!!
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine (set it out for 8-10 minutes or so)
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- Mix the ingredients together.
- Roll the dough and cut the biscuits about 1/2 inch thick.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes (oven variation)**I use a cast iron biscuit skillet.
The taste of these biscuits was great, however, it seemed like there were ingredients missing. The biscuits were far from fluffy. In fact, they stayed 1/2" tall when cooked. I don't know if it was something I did or if they should have been allowed to raise or what. Next time I will probably add some pepper jack cheese to them and drop them instead of rolling them out.
These are great! I think the poster below misunderstood the intention of this recipe. The biscuits are NOT meant to be fluffy. The texture reminded me of the biscuits my great grandmother use to serve.
