I am always looking for new and good biscuit recipies. I thought I might have found one in the "Sour Cream Butter Biscuits". I printed the recipe and even rechecked it. It was terrible dry. Not enough moisture in it to even mix in all the flour/butter mixture.. Fortunatly I had some buttermilk. Poured about 1/4 cup into the mixture, remixed the dry mess and finally came up with a dough that I could kneed a little, pat out and cut into small round biscuits. I got 32 doing it this way. There is NO WAY that I could have "spooned" that dough into the mini muffin pans. My question is this--- What kind of sour cream do you use. I had a carton of commercial sour cream (1 full cup). Should I have had pourable cream and made it sour with viniger? If you could do it with original ingredients, as listed, your are a friggin magician..... Lou O'C

All I had was a regular muffin pan and they still came out PERFECT!! Delicious and so easy to fix!

These biscuits were so good. I used a regular muffin tray and they still turned out great, I also added some cheese to them. My husband and son loved them.Thanks Paula.

My granddaughter started making these for us and they are the best biscuits I've ever had. They are close to the ones served at Red Lobster only better.

These sound like the Mayonnaise Rolls my Mama & I used to make. Been thinking about making them again. I'd almost bet that the sour cream makes them even better! Can hardly wait to try them! Thanks Paula!
