  1. Tasty biscuits I made to use up some sour cream. Served with butter and seedless raspberry jam. I made my own two cups of self-rising flour as follows: Place 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a two-cup measuring cup. Add enough all-purpose flour to equal 2 cups. Will definitely make these biscuits again.
  2. I really enjoyed these biscuits. They were tender and flaky, and so easy to make. I loved the texture of these treats. We enjoyed them with fried chicken and honey, so delicious. Thanks for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again.
  3. My Husband and I loved this recipe !!! It was super easy to put together. Baked up in a flash. Thank you for the recipe !
  4. It truly doesn't get any easier or more delicious than this! These are the most tender, melt-in-your-mouth little morsels! They are sort of an amalgam of a buttermilk biscuit, savory muffin, and shortbread. SOOOO good!
  5. I am not sure what happened but these didn't turn out well for me at all. My dough was pretty wet to start with so I added an extra bit of flour. I ended up with 12 very buttery soggy muffins and that was after cooking for a bit longer and turning them out on a paper towel to soak up a bunch of the butter. I tasted the crust that was done and could tell these have great flavor I am just not sure what went wrong - we ended up throwing them out. I will try these again and update my review.


  1. Sour cream is fine, but I use plain greek yogurt as a sub in most any recipe. It worked great in these biscuits. They are really tasty and I especially like the crunch of the outside. We had with peppered sausage gravy. Yum.
