Ooh, these biscuits are good! I had some sour cream that needed to be used up and I'm not sure WHY I googled "sour cream biscuits", but I did, and here we are. The base recipe is from Taste of Home, but I added chives and onion powder because sour cream and onion sure go well together. The biscuits are wonderful. They're VERY tender and delightful. You could easily leave out the chives and onion powder if you want them plain. The dough is also really easy to make, so a good choice if you're a little intimidated by the idea of making biscuits from scratch!
This recipe makes 6 nicely sized biscuits. You could definitely double it if you need more, I'd suggest making 2 circles of dough on your pan instead of just 1.
Sour Cream & Onion Biscuits
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
4 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 C sour cream
2 tsp canola oil
Preheat oven to 425 and place a square of parchment paper in a round cake pan. Set aside.
Whisk together dry ingredients. Stir together sour cream and oil, then add to dry ingredients. Stir just until evenly combined, no longer than that because the biscuits could turn out tough. You may need to get in there with your hands to mix the dough. Dough will be very sticky.
Transfer dough to the prepared cake pan and use your hand to evenly press the dough into a 3/4 inch thick circle, it will help if you get your hand wet. Use a knife to cut the dough into 6 triangles, but don't pull them apart.
Bake until golden on top, about 15 minutes. To serve, just pull the biscuits apart. These are great with butter!
