National Biscuit Month
and I do love me a fluffy biscuit still warm from the oven! Total comfort food on a crisp fall morning.
I’m on a quest to find the perfect biscuit. One that stays fluffy and tender even after they cool off. The biscuits that I’ve made recently are fantastic out of the oven, but after they cool down and sit a while, they get kind of grainy. I’m thinking it might have something to do with the fat or flour used.
Recently I tried a new recipe using sour cream and was impressed with the tenderness of dough. Topped with some apple butter, that warm biscuit was just right along with my scrambled eggs.
Sour Cream Biscuits
2 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons water
In a large mixing bowl, add flour and sour cream. Mix to a soft dough. Add additional water if necessary.
With well floured hands, shape dough into round biscuit shapes. Place in greased baking pan with sides touching. Brush biscuit tops with oil. Bake at 450º for 10-12 minutes. Brush with butter before serving.
*For this batch of biscuits, I preheated an iron skillet, along with about 3 tablespoons of oil. I wanted to see if the bottoms of my biscuits would be crispy…and they were! :)
Tip: If you don’t have self-rising flour, use 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and 3 teaspoons baking powder.
a great low carb biscuit recipe for all my low carb fans.

Just for fun today…I’d like to see where my readers are from, so if you don’t mind, please leave the name of your state (or country) in a comment. I’d appreciate it so much!

Also, just let you know…I’ve been busily baking!
Right now I’m testing some new low carb recipes and some new uses of some already tried and true recipes.
Here’s some pics to let you know what’s coming up. I’ll be sharing the recipes in the very near future.
I’ve been using my low carb Carbquik biscuit recipe in different ways and I’m pleasantly surprised at how versatile this recipe is!
my biscuit recipe baked in a muffin pan.
Then I had the bright idea to add a little bit of Splenda and some sugar free chocolate chips. To 2 of them I added some peanut butter just to see how they would bake up.
Same biscuit recipe made a little sweeter and turned into a cake batter, then baked in a cast iron skillet. With the added fruit, I’m not too sure of the carb count.
But this sure is good when heated and topped with a little sugar free vanilla ice cream!
Hope you enjoy looking at the food pictures and will be back to check out the recipes!
Y’all come back now, ya heah?! :D
Sometimes some of the best suppers come from the hands of friends and family.
Fried Pork Tenderloin, fresh from the H Farms in Kentucky and courtesy of my dear sister-in-law, Dorothy. We never leave Dorothy’s without a cooler packed with meat and jars of home-canned greenbeans and vegetable soup.
Longing for simplicity and lacking in time, I decided to fry the fresh pork tenderloin for supper. It’s supper in the South, you know. Dinner is at noon.
The tomatoes are from my father’s garden. He delivered those to me at work, along with a large bag of sweet bell peppers. I will slice and freeze most of those for future use.
To complete the simple meal, I threw together some drop biscuits using a pre-made baking mix. My girls seem to think that drop biscuits are a gourmet treat. Gone are the days of actually rolling the dough. Those are just plain biscuits! Whatever they want to think. Drop biscuits are so easy, I don’t think I’ll explain the difference to them just yet.
