Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

  1. Set oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Measure flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sour cream and milk into bowl. Stir lightly until combined, adding a little more milk if needed to hold dry ingredients together.
  3. Flour bread board lightly and push dough onto it. Flour hands and knead gently 8-10 times.
  4. Pat dough out until it is about 1/2" to 3/4" thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter and place on ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake about 8 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan to cooling rack.
  6. Yield: 11-12 biscuits, depending on diameter of cutter.

          I use all-purppose unbleached flour. Yes I have cut them too with a sharp knife, which cuts them cleaner without depressing the sides as a glass does. But I always remember mom using a glass in a pinch to cut out biscuits and there's such a variety of sizes that way too. I hope you like trying them out. So much tastier than store bought.

            WOW! I cant wait to try these. Did you use White Lily flour. That is all I use for my biscuits. Next time I make biscuits I will try it with sour cream. I also cut my biscuits because I can never find my cutters. Sometimes I use a glass.
