Reimagine Sour Cream Biscuits: A Unique Sour Cream Biscuit Recipe with Potato Flakes & Subtle Sweetness

This recipe uses a unique ingredient with instant potato flakes. This helps lighten the dough from using all flour, leading to airier biscuits.

The amount of sour cream is reduced compared to others as the sole fat. The reason is because my recipe adds healthy canola oil and milk that create a softer, richer dough for more delicate biscuits.

A lot of similar recipes use both baking soda and baking powder. However, my recipe uses just baking powder. Skipping the baking soda eliminates the potential for an odd taste you experienced and keeps the recipe simpler.

Three teaspoons of sugar add a touch of sweetness that’s not typical in savory biscuits. This could be a delightful surprise for people who enjoy a sweeter biscuit or pair them with complementary fruits or jams.

Using oil instead of butter for drop biscuits simplify the process and eliminates the need for rolling and shaping the dough from traditional sour cream biscuits. By incorporating milk this becomes easier drop biscuits and a no-fuss recipe.
