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
Medium mixing bowl
Space to turn and shape the dough
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
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Put the butter in your pan and place pan in the oven to heat up.
- 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.
- 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.
- Remove pan with melted butter from the oven and place 12 golf-ball sized balls of dough in the pan.
- 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.
- Dust the tops with a little bit of butter and enjoy!
