“Grandma Mitchell would make her ultra flakey biscuits with sour cream as her “secret” ingredient. She would bake a dozen of them and I’d eat half of them, split them open and just let the melted butter and Welch’s grape jelly seep into them.”
– Joe Bacon
“This is what they looked like”:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 stick butter or margarine softened or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons
1 1/2 cups sour cream
Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut in butter until like coarse crumbs. Add sour cream and mix with a spoon until holds together.
Roll out on a floured surface and cut out with biscuit cutter. Place on sprayed baking sheet. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown on top. Makes about 18 biscuits.
