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



2 cups all-purpose flour
1 + 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup whole milk or heavy cream
1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
2 rounded tablespoons snipped chives or green onions
1 – 2 tablespoons melted butter, for brushing over tops


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or two knives scissor fashion until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a small bowl stir together milk and sour cream until mixture is almost smooth then stir in the chives.
  5. 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.
  6. Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, flour your hands and knead about 10 times or until dough holds together.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
