We love having fresh bread with dinner, but sometimes I just don’t have time to make it from scratch. Enter my favorite biscuit recipe! These are so simple to make and they have great texture and flavor. Don’t let the sour cream scare you either. You can’t taste it but it adds a nice flaky texture without requiring 2 lbs of lard. Doesn’t sour cream sound better than lard? I think so too.

Making homemade biscuits is very easy! You don’t need an electric mixer or any special tools (although I do love my Ateco Biscuit Cutters!) Keep it fast and simple!

Here are a few tips on how to make the best homemade biscuits:

  1. Do NOT overmix! Just use a mixing bowl and a rubber scraper or spoon. Don’t use any type of en electric mixer as it’s incredibly easy to over mix the dough. Aim to mix the dough about 15 times and that’s it! I find it usually takes about 15 turns of the rubber scraper to get the ingredients incorporated.
  2. Grating the butter really makes your life so much easier. I promise! It’s super fast and works really, really well for biscuit recipes. Just use a basic cheese grater and make sure your butter is cold. Grated butter adds a wonderful texture and flavor to these biscuits.
  3. Remember that the dough will be STICKY. Sticky dough yields soft, delicate biscuits with amazing texture. Don’t add a lot of flour when you’re patting the dough out and cutting it into biscuits. Use just enough to be able to cut the biscuits out into circles, that’s it. Yes it gets a bit messy. It’s okay, it will all be worth it! I like to spray my countertop with non-stick spray before I transfer the dough out on top of it, so that I use even less added flour.
  4. As with most baked goods, be sure to not over bake! That’s one quick way to have hard, dry biscuits, blech!

Ingredients Needed for Sour Cream Biscuit Recipe

To make Sour Cream Biscuits, you’ll need:

–1 egg

–1 cup sour cream

–1 TBSP sugar

–1/4 cup butter

–2 cups all purpose flour

–1 tsp baking powder

–1/2 tsp baking soda

–3/4 tsp salt

How to make Homemade Biscuits

To make Homemade Biscuits, first you’ll need to preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Crack egg in a bowl and beat with a fork. Add the sour cream and sugar.

Grate the cold butter into the mixing bowl. Grating butter is a super fast way to mix small chunks of butter into the dough without taking time to roll the dough multiple times. As a matter of fact, you don’t roll the dough out at all with this recipe! Add in the remaining dry ingredients and stir just until mixed. Dough will be sticky.

Lightly flour a counter top and use a rubber scraper to scrape the dough out from the bowl. Sprinkle some additional flour on top and lightly knead a few times. Shape it into a mound and pat dough out to 1 1/2″ thickness. I just use my hands!

Spray biscuit cutters with non-stick spray. If you don’t have cutters, you can use the open end of a cup, canning jar rings or simply cut them with a knife and form balls. Cut dough to form 9 biscuits. If you have leftover dough, divide it up, pat each piece flat and place it on the underside of each of the 9 biscuits.

Place the biscuits in the greased pan with the sides of the biscuits almost or barely touching. Pat the tops down slightly so that they’re smoother on top. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Serve warm topped with our Strawberry Freezer Jam. Yum!

Yields 9 biscuits. For more roll-like biscuits, add an extra egg!

Can you freeze Homemade Biscuits?

Yes, you can freeze homemade biscuits in an airtight container for up to 1 month. I find after that 4 week mark, the texture and flavor of the biscuits suffer.

Can you freeze homemade biscuit dough?

Yes, you can freeze the unbaked homemade biscuit dough that’s been shaped into biscuits. Simply place the formed biscuits on a parchment lined baking tray and freeze for several hours. Once solid, transfer to an airtight container and freeze for 2-3 months. Once you’re ready to bake the biscuits, place them in an 8×8 greased pan and let them sit out several hours, until thawed. Proceed with the rest of the recipe, baking for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.
