All and all, life is fantastic. Even more fantastic is this recipe I'm about to give you. I love biscuits. They are easily whipped up in 5 minutes flat, if you have a food processor, even if you don't takes no more than a couple of minutes if you don't mind getting your hands dirty.
These biscuits are the perfect compliment to any soup, they have a creamy undertone from the sour cream and a slight bite from the green onions. And of course, they must be slathered in butter before eaten. Or plain but let's be honest, everything tastes better with butter.
Sour cream & green onion biscuits
[ from Baking Bites ]
If you don't have a food processor this can easily be made with your hands and a spoon. Instead of pulsing the butter in the flour mixture, use your hands to crumble the butter into the flour mix and stir the sour cream and onions in with a wooden spoon.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 cup butter, chilled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped green onion
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl of food processor, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Pulse to combine. Sprinkle in pieces of butter and pulse 3-4 times or until it resembles coarse sand and the pieces of butter are pea-sized. Stir in the sour cream and onions until dough is moistened, turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until the dough comes together in a ball.
Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness, using a round cookie cutter cut into rounds and place rounds onto a baking sheet. Dough can be gathered and re-rolled once. Bake for 20-24 minutes or until tops are golden brown and the biscuits are puffed and firm.
Let cool slightly on rack before serving. Or take your chances and eat immediately.
