Sour Cream Biscuits

Ingredients
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup cold butter
1/2
cup milk
1/2
cup dairy sour cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Measure flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir these ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (Or, crumble the butter in with your fingers.)
  2. In a small bowl stir together milk and sour cream until mixture is almost smooth. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add the milk mixture all at once. Using a wooden spoon stir just until the dough sticks together.
  3. Using hands or a wooden spoon, push dough onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle a little flour on hands. Gently knead 8 or 10 times or just until dough holds together.
  4. Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness. (Or, roll dough with a floured rolling pin.) Using the edge of a clean, floured ruler, cut dough into large diamonds or squares, approximately 3 inches. Place on ungreased baking sheet, leaving about 1-inch space between each biscuit.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Using a wide spatula carefully remove biscuits from baking sheet. Serve immediately. Makes 10 biscuits.
