These sour cream biscuits are great for breakfast, brunch or as an appetizer. Honestly, they are good anytime. They are light and fluffy and a good way to use up sour cream. I make these when I have sour cream in the fridge that has gone past the date on the container. Serve with butter and honey or your favorite jams or jellies.


All-purpose flour


Baking soda

Baking powder


Sour cream

“I have made these several times. They are so good. I could kick myself for how many times I have thrown away sour cream. Because I didn’t think about making these.”-Michelle

Recipe notes: this recipe makes around 18 biscuits, depending on the size you make them. Remember, all oven temps vary, so you’ll need to watch your biscuits and remove them from the oven when they become a bit golden on the top.

“These are the best biscuits I’ve ever eaten and so easy to make.
So light and fluffy.”-Janie
