Simple Sour Cream Biscuits

"This recipe is perfect for those of us who love homemade biscuits, but only cook for 1 or 2 people. You'll have 4 fresh, warm, tender biscuits on your plate in only 15 minutes. These biscuits cook up so quickly, that you can enjoy them any time of day! Eat them for breakfast, spread with butter, jelly, or honey, or use them to wipe up every drop of gravy off your dinner plate. Also try placing the raw biscuits on top of your favorite pot pie filling, and you'll have a hearty, comforting meal. This is a great way for new cooks to learn how to make biscuits!!"

directions

  • Combine flour and baking soda, then add remaining ingredients, stirring just to combine.
  • Place dough on floured surface, knead 4-6 times, then cut into 4 biscuits--you can just use a knife to divide the dough into 4 squares, or use a biscuit cutter for the classic round shape-if you don't have a biscuit cutter, use a drinking glass turned upside down.
  • Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter, or just lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    Wow! These WERE very simple and quick & easy to throw together on the spur of the moment. My dough was a little sticky but the floured surface used for kneading was enough to make it less so and workable. I cut mine with the bottom of a drinking glass and got 4 great biscuits that rose nicely and were golden in my oven at 10 mins. I had one leftover that I enjoyed this morning for breakfast with butter & jam. These were tender and light,I was impressed that I made such a nice biscuit! Oh, and I didn't have self rising flour so I used the following substitution to equal the one cup ( 1 cup all purpose flour + 1 1/2 tsps. baking powder + 1/2 tsp. salt)I may try adding a touch of sugar next time for a little sweetness( I'm used to it in my tea biscuit recipe) but these certainly are great as is! Thanks T Girl, I will be making these again! ( T Girl's Cook-a-thon, May 2004)

    I love an easy biscuit recipe that actually works!! Perfect for the two of us, too, so we don't overeat all that biscuit loveliness slathered in butter. I used bacon fat instead of vegetable oil (as I had just made bacon and I couldn't resist!). Lovely!

    I doubled the batch and got 10 or so medium sized biscuits. They didn't raise very high, but they were light and delicious. I will make these again. Thanks!

    Just found this recipe this morning because I was oul of bisquick, and didn't want to take the time to make a sub. I think these biscuits turned out better than any I've made in years, Great taste, very light and fluffy without being crumbley, and beautiful golden brown. will be making these often. No need to make Baking Mix with this recipe around.

    What a great simple recipe to have on hand when a friend visits. I just cut the dough into four and it made lovey, light scone like servings (very generous size) without the fuss or density of some scones. Very light and fluffy on the inside. Golden brown on the outside which adds to the home cooked look with little effort and ingredients. Thanks for the recipe it is a keeper! These tasted great with butter and honey.
