Nice little biscuits. I made my own self-rising flour (in a one cup measure: 1 1/2 t. baking powder and 1/2 t. salt; then add all purpose flour to cup and level off). I used lite sour cream just to use it up and I did add 1 T. of milk because my dough seemed really dry. As another reviewer mentioned these didn’t brown very well on top, even though I drizzled them with a little melted butter before baking. So, I slipped them under the broiler just for about 30 seconds to give them a little better color.

Be sure and use unsalted butter otherwise these are WAYYYYY too salty.

Expect a THICK dough when you make this. This is drop-biscuit consistancy. The flavor of these were good, though VERY crumbly. Like, I would bite into one and it would fall apart. That really was the only downfall for this recipe. When I eat a biscuit, I like to bite into it and not have to pick the pieces off of my plate. I think it could use another flavor besides the sour cream and butter. Next time, I'd like to add some garlic powder or something, if I were to serve this with dinner again. Maybe knead the dough a bit with a little more flour and see if cutting this with a biscuit cutter would make a difference. This would make a great breakfast biscuit with a homemade jam spread on the insides.

This makes a very thick batter, almost a dough. The batter nicely fills 6 muffin tins. My biscuits took the full 30 minutes to bake. The sides browned nicely, but the tops were still very light. Next time I may add some melted butter to the tops about halfway through baking. I couldn't wait until dinner, and tried a biscuit. I half expected them to be bland, but they were delicious. The salt in the flour, richness from the butter and tangy undertone from the sour cream are a delightful combination. I spread a little homemade apple butter on one for a very tasty snack. It's so quick and simple and can easily be doubled.

I tried this recipe as an experiment, just for grins, because some things about it were so unusual. What struck me? First, baking them in a muffin tin. Second, at the moderate temperature of 350*, a temperature more for cupcakes. Third, a stick of butter for a cup of flour?! Finally, some reviewers reported the tops didn't brown. I decided to try this recipe with a different take. I blended the butter with the flour until crumbly, then gently stirred in the sour cream, taking care not to overwork the dough so as to ensure tenderness. I like the crusty, sort of crunchy, golden exterior of a nicely baked biscuit so I baked them at 450* on a cookie sheet, lined with foil for easy clean-up. I dropped them onto the sheet in mounds and flattened them slightly. (If I try these again I'd skip that step - maybe they'd rise just a tad higher) I was pleased with the results, all of which I expected. I saved time and a pan to clean by dropping them onto cookie sheets. The biscuits baked to a golden brown, including the tops - and in 10 minutes! They were soft and tender with a crusty exterior. And because of all that butter they were rich and flavorful. I also expected, these were TOO buttery - you could use half the butter (even if you had to add a little extra sour cream or even milk to compensate) and these would be much better - less butter-saturated and a little less salty. Four stars as I baked them, lower if baked as directed and they didn't brown.

I made these for dinner last night and had to stop my son from eating ONLY these biscuits. I added garlic and cheddar chesse and baked in a mini-muffin tin. The only thing I will do differently next time is to lightly grease the tins. I think the cheese made them stick slightly. Thanks for the recipe

Quick, easy, tasty. These will work well for easy breakfasts for my husband...he can just zap them in the microwave and add butter and jelly. I hope others give them a try now too.

I did 2 cups of Bisquick, 1 stick of butter, and 1 cup of sour cream! This was the perfect amount to fill a 12 count muffin pan. UNREAL! These are the best biscuits I've ever had. Won't be looking for another biscuit recipe....this is a keeper.
