Homemade Buttery Biscuits

After trying many recipes, this is the recipe that goes over best with our family. Be warned…there is a LOT of butter in this recipe.

What you’ll need:

8X8 baking pan

 1 dry measuring cup (1 cup) and 1 standard liquid measuring cup

Mixing Spoon

Medium mixing bowl

Space to turn and shape the dough

 

Ingredients:

3 cups of self-rising flour (2 cups for the actual dough and 1 extra cup out for turning the dough)

1 cup of sour cream

1 cup of Sprite (or any other lemon lime kind of drink, like Mountain Dew)

4 tablespoons of butter

 

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put the butter in your pan and place pan in the oven to heat up.
  3. While the butter is melting, mix 2 cups of self-rising flour, 1 cup of sour cream, and 1 cup of sprite in your mixing bowl with your spoon. The dough should become sticky.
  4. Spread ½ cup of flour on your turning surface and place your dough on it. Begin to knead and turn the dough, adding the remaining ½ cup of flour until the dough is less sticky but still malleable.
  5. Remove pan with melted butter from the oven and place 12 golf-ball sized balls of dough in the pan.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Around the 17-minute mark, peek at them to see if the biscuits are a golden-brown color. They’re done when they’re browned on top, and you can poke a cake knife through with no residue.
  7. Dust the tops with a little bit of butter and enjoy!
