Butter Biscuits

This is one of what I call my secret weapon recipes.  Secret weapon recipes are those recipes that you can completely, totally, 1000% rely on to work Every Single Time, and that are also a little bit different and a whole lot of delicious.  I count my scrambled eggs with ricotta and chives in this category, as well as my recipe for naked ravioli and my beloved Blue Dory cookie recipe too.  These delectable biscuits are the biscuit version of my secret weapon recipe, and let’s just say that the first time I made them, the Southern husband ate all of them.  In one day.  A full biscuit recipe, gone just like that.  It was both alarming and highly satisfying all at the same time…and here’s how it’s done.

First, the ingredients you need for these little gems: Bisquick.  Sour cream.  Butter.

Yup, that’s it.  That’s all you need for what I solemnly promise will be some of the best biscuits you are ever going to eat.  The combination of the sour cream and the butter makes these babies taste like they are already buttered.  And how fabulous is that?

Almost as good is the fact that all you need to do is mix up these three ingredients, scoop the batter into a muffin tin, bake them until they are golden, and then try and exercise enough self control not to eat them all in one sitting.  Not that anyone would ever do that.  (Right, honey?)

I’ll stop now and let you get to baking some butter biscuits, because I don’t want you to go another minute without this deliciousness. Secret weapon recipes!

    I can’t wait to make these!! I just bought a very big container of sourcream yesterday, so I have all these ingredients. I will let you know how they turn out. It may be dangerous, as I love biscuits!

    Thanks Kate :-)

    You probably know already but these “biscuits” are more like our Australian “scones” and our “biscuits” are more like your “cookies”… but what’s in a name, eh? Important thing is that they taste good and these look YUMMEEE!!!

    Thanks again.

    Love these! I make them in a mini-muffin tin and stir in some chopped chives and serve with my potato cheddar soup. So yummy!

    I made this last night and the teenager ate almost all of them. I’m thinking of putting in a healthy amount of chives next time!
