These homemade sour cream biscuits are a bit intimidating but the truth is this is a no-fail recipe. Simple, not fussy, and comes together easily. At first, I thought I’ll fail but even if I over-baked them a tad, they still are great! See, these biscuits no matter what will come out perfect. I love how they rise beautifully and the sour cream made them light and tender. And the ingredients are all pantry essential, you don’t have to be a pro to pull this off, and these gems are ready in under thirty minutes!


2 c flour
1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
