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



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



  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!
