Haven't tried these yet, but I don't understand the people that said they were too salty. There is no salt in the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were certainly easy- I'm wouldn't agree that they were delicious though. The whole thing was just a wad of butter flavored flour. Unfortunately it was a waste of precious materials that aren't easy to come by here in China...the butter and sour cream especially. I'll stick to 7-up sour cream biscuits if I'm lucky enough to get more sour cream any time this year! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow....these where delicious...my husband really loved them too! Yes I will be making these again, yum yum!! Thanks Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were surprisingly really good, I added a handful of cheese, used my food processor, and added a little bit of garlic, and they came out tasting like Red lobsters cheddar bay biscuits. also made them in a jumbo muffin pan and halved the recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful and so easy! My mom used to make her mom's homemade biscuits but they took forever and the mess was incredible when I would make them. They were delicious but it took me a couple of hours to put them together. These taste very similar but they take about ten minutes, if that, to put together! Thanks Paula! <3 item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yuk:( I did not like them. They were very grainy, not the type of biscuits I am use to item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are delicious!!! Did not have self raising flour, made my own. I cut the recipe in half. I was short about a teaspoon of butter but I use olive oil to make up the difference. Had to cook it 14 minutes beore they were a light brown. Yes they are a little salty so next time I will cut back on the salt to make the self raising flour. But other than that they are AWESOME!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are delicious! I don't keep self rising flour on hand ever, but it's easy to make your own at home. One adjustment I had to make was the cooking time. At 1100 ft. I had to cook them for 17 minutes, so next time I may raise the temp on the oven a little. I loved how they had a thin crusty/ crunchy edge but were amazingly moist & fluffy inside. These are great with a dot of apricot pineapple jam. Very yummy : when I made these my mom was here...she thought they were wonderful too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are the FIRST homemade biscuits that have ever worked for me! They were so delicious! I halved the recipe and just dropped them by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. I ended up having to cook them about 16 minutes to get them to brown, but they still ended up nice and fluffy inside. item not reviewed by moderator and published
WOW! Super easy and super yummy. Probably not a particularly healthy choice. I made them to go on chicken and biscuits, so we won't just eat all of them. It was hard to stop myself, though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Light, fluffy, EASY! Hubby and I loved them. Added slighty less sour cream and a little buttermilk in it's place. Probably made no diff in the deliciousness item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cut the recipe in half, a family of four watching the waistlines, this recipe makes too many. I used a small scoop and got 24 mini muffins out of 1/2 the recipe. I also found that they were not done at the 10 minute mark and not browned on top. I flipped them over with a fork and continued to bake for another 3 minutes. They came out perfect! I absolutely loved these!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm sure this original recipe is delicious - with those ingredients how could it not be tasty?! I've only made it with some slightly healthier ingredients and we LOVE them. Greek yogurt in place of sour cream, swap half the butter for olive oil, and whole wheat or spelt flour. To make your own self-rising flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to each cup of regular flour. Especially good when used as a topping for a pot pie or stew! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy, easy, fast, cheap ingredients--won't ever make any other biscuits again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very easy and yummy. Would definitely make time and time again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and yummy. My go to biscuit! Go Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cut the recipe in half as I didn't need this many biscuits for 2 people. Glad I didn't make the whole recipe and waste 2 sticks of butter as it was a disaster. They didn't appear to be done at the end of the cooking time, nor were they nice and toasted on the top, so I cooked for another 10 min. Took them out, still not toasted on top but the bottoms were nicely browned. Biscuits were VERY oily, like they had been soaked in butter, a little salty and tasted like they were not done and very heavy. They didn't rise at all. I don't think it was the cook as a friend also made them and they also did not turn out. She threw hers in the garbage. I plan to try them again and hopefully this time they will turn out wonderful. Maybe a little less butter next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They were very easy to make and assemble. The only problem I experienced was that the biscuits were a little salty. I am going to use unsalted buttter tonight and see if that makes it even better than it is! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made them the original way, and have also added chives and shredded cheese to them. Both ways, they are oustanding! They never last more than a couple of hours. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!! Making them again tonight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are so easy and soooo delicious!! However, I did have to bake them for 15 minutes and they were perfectly done. Great recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
HOLY MOLY...These are some tasty biscuits..absolutely delicious!! I had to bake them a bit longer then 10 minutes, but I'm sure that was just my oven! I've been trying quick recipes for biscuits in search of the perfect biscuit addition to any meal and now I can stop...this is it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These tiny biscuits are the tastiest little bites of heaven, I think I've ever tasted. I'm a southern cook too, so anything with butter is awesome. But what really sets these mini biscuits apart is the sour cream. That tangy zip you get from the sour cream is awesome. Way to go Paula another awesome recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These biscuits are very good!! They have become an addition to many meals in my house. I make these biscuits at least 3 times a month :-I put honey on top as soon as they come out of the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved these biscuits. They are the epitome of buttery goodness. My husband literally used them to sop his plate, and my 4 and 6 year olds almost fought over the last one. They were super easy to make and came out perfectly. I divided the recipe in half (won't ever do that again! and made regular sized biscuits, so I increased baking time to 15 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I TRIED THESE A FEW DAYS AFTER I SAW IT AIRED, AND I MUST SAY THEY WERE PRETTY GOOD! I DIDN'T HAVE SELF RISING FLOUR SO I USED ALL PURPOSE AND ADDED A LITTLE BAKING POWDER AND THEY WERE STILL GOOD. I MADE THEM ALONG WITH SHRIMP & GRITS AND MY BOYFRIEND HAD 2 HELPINGS! WILL DEFINITELY BE MAKING THEM AGAIN. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Family LOVED them and they are very picky!! Great simple and fast! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Big hit!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
i followed the recipe but made drop bisquits instead of muffins. The butter melted onto the pan and started to smoke. Was afraid i was going to set off the fire alarm. Sorry didnt work for me item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy to make, and delicious!!! Thank you, Paula : I made the first batch exactly as Paula's receipe called it (my muffin pan is small. To the second batch half way into baking I added a little shredded cheddar cheese on top of each biscuit, and let it broil for a minute. The cheese melted and browned very nicely! I served them with fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Good Sunday evening dinner, and my friend liked it too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Will be making these again. Very delicious!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good biscuits and I had quite an ordeal with substitutes. First, I didn't have a mini muffin pan so I used regular sized one which altered the cooking time I'm sure. Second, I thought I had self rising flour but did not so I had to add in baking powder and salt. Despite my issues, they still came out with an awesome texture. Now that I have more self rising flour, I'm dying to try them again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
dunklinp@browns... don't know what went wrong with your recipe. Just make sure self-rising flour was used and not expired, use real butter, and regular sour cream, no substitutes. Also make sure your oven temp is registering correctly. These are awesome biscuits! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great!!! My family loved them!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These biscuits were beyond lovely!! They simply melt in your mouth fresh out of the oven. They were also super simple to put together. Best biscuits ever! I will surely make this a family tradition for future Thanksgiving dinners. You are sure to love them like I do. Watch out it's hard to stop with just one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
they looked delicious. my wife made them as we were watching paula make them. I am thinking something went wrong when she added the ingrediants because when we bit into them, they were wet and oily in the middle. we put them back in the oven for additional 10 minutes and they never cooked in the middle. i will re-try them again because i have never had a Paula recipe fail. We had to had made a mistake. i will give a few stars because i love paula and it must have been the cooks error. item not reviewed by moderator and published
