There’s no messing around when it comes to making biscuits. Now, we’re fine with using some form of bisquick biscuit mix to help the process move a little faster, but that doesn’t mean you can skimp on add-ins that will help make your biscuits the very best they can be. In this case that means lots of butter, plus two other, more unusual ingredients…soda and sour cream!
While it might seem strange to add soda and sour cream to your baked goods, we promise you we haven’t gone crazy; the additions make for moist, flaky biscuits that are some of the best we’ve ever had! Apart from what we put in the biscuits themselves, we also have a little trick up our sleeves regarding how these bad boys are baked – the trick is to add melted butter to your baking dish and plop your biscuit dough right down into it. The finished results are completely addictive, so prepare yourself: you won’t be able to have just one!
