Sour Cream Biscuits

Five ingredients are all you need to make the ultimate flaky biscuit. These tender flaky biscuits just beg to be served with honey. For the best result, use the right flour. Self-rising has a lower protein level than regular all-purpose flour and results in a more tender biscuit. And sour cream makes for incredibly flaky biscuits.

Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in sour cream just until combined.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead just until it holds together. Pat dough into a 1-inch-thick circle. Cut 10 biscuits using a 2-inch-round cutter. Transfer biscuits to prepared baking sheet; bake until golden, 1518 minutes. Brush biscuits with melted butter during the last few minutes of baking.


To prevent tough biscuits, dump dough onto a floured counter and knead it just until it comes together.

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 22.19. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 22.19) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
