This biscuit recipe is a nice change to regular biscuits. This recipe also has the advantage of being for a smaller amount of biscuits than my usual recipe. It makes 6 to 8 biscuits in just a half-hour.
- 1.25 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8th teaspoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons shortening *
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Prepare a clean work surface but don’t flour it yet.
- In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in shortenng until the mixture is crumbly. Add milk and sour cream and mix until a dough comes together.
- Flour your work area. Turn out the dough onto your now floured work area and knead it ten times. Dough will be delicate. Flatten or roll the dough into a half-inch thickness and cut into biscuits. Place them on a baking sheet
- Bake until biscuits are lighty browned, about ten minutes.

* – I prefer to use butter-flavored shortening. It makes for a better biscuit.
