I’ll be honest, I’ve always been the type of person to just grab a can of biscuits or crescent rolls from the dairy aisle. It just seemed easier, especially when cooking a large meal. However, these biscuits seemed so easy that I had to give them a try. I got the recipe from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice, and overall they were pretty good, next time want to try to increase the flavor a bit more though.
Sour Cream and Chive Biscuits
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or two knives scissor fashion until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a small bowl stir together milk and sour cream until mixture is almost smooth then stir in the chives.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk mixture. Using a wooden spoon stir just until the dough sticks together.
- Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, flour your hands and knead about 10 times or until dough holds together.
- Pat or roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter (I used a 2″) or round cookie cutter and place on a parchment lined or non-stick baking sheet.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
I tried brushing the tops with butter both before baking and after but both methods produced the same result, so its really up to you.
