Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray, if needed.
  • Crack egg in a bowl and beat with a fork. Add the sour cream and sugar. Grate the cold butter into the mixing bowl. Add in the remaining dry ingredients and stir just until mixed. Dough will be sticky.
  • Lightly flour a counter top and use a rubber scraper to scrape the dough out from the bowl. Sprinkle some additional flour on top and lightly knead a few times. Shape it into a mound and pat dough out to 1 1/2" thickness. I just use my hands!
  • Spray biscuit cutters with non-stick spray. If you don't have cutters, you can use the open end of a cup, canning jar rings or simply cut them with a knife and form balls. Cut dough to form 9 biscuits. If you have leftover dough, divide it up, pat each piece flat and place it on the underside of each of the 9 biscuits.
  • Place the biscuits in the greased pan. Pat the tops down slightly so that they're smoother on top. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Serve warm topped with our Strawberry Freezer Jam. Yum!

Notes

Yields 9 biscuits. For more roll-like biscuits, add an extra egg!
