Sour Cream Mini Biscuits

These Sour Cream Mini Biscuits are melt in your mouth and so easy!These Mini Sour Cream Biscuits are melt in your mouth and so easy!

I’m not particular about much but I am when it comes to my bed sheets. We have amazingly soft sheets made from Bamboo that we bought while we were in Key West for our ten year anniversary.

Every night I have a ritual of checking my sheets before I go to bed. They have to be tightly tucked in and proportionate to my side versus my husband’s.

If they happened to come untucked in the middle of the night I immediately hop out of bed and make the adjustments.

The other night my husband came in to bed right after me and was startled to see that the sheets were untucked, sideways, and completely disheveled.

Uh…what’s going on here?” he said in astonishment. “Do you realize the sheets are…”

I don’t even care“, I mumbled. “I’m so tired.”

And then my husband tried to find a corner of the sheet he could call his for the night.

Have you ever been so exhausted the room was spinning? The lack of sleep was catching up to me.

But then the most amazing thing happened. My newborn baby slept for seven hours. Seven.

I had dreams. Crazy, nonsensical dreams. Oh, how I had missed dreaming. I couldn’t remember the last time I had a dream.

There’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Sour Cream Mini Biscuits | The Girl Who Ate Everything

To top it off my boys came down with a bug. I’ll save you the gritty details but it hasn’t been pretty. I’ve been feeding them a lot of chicken noodle soup and made these biscuits to go with it.

There are only 3 ingredients in these biscuits which made me skeptical but the taste surprisingly good. You know I love these Cheddar Bay Biscuits but I literally had them in the oven in under 5 minutes. So easy and will be my go-to in the future.

They have a soft buttery inside and the sour cream gives them such a unique flavor. They are wonderful warm.

Just pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds if you don’t eat them right away. I think they would be great with any add ins like cheese and bacon.

Source: from Paula Deen
Servings: 3 dozen
  • 1 cup butter , softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups self-rising flour (see Notes for substitute)
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and grease a miniature muffin pan.
  2. With a mixer, blend the butter, sour cream, and flour until well combined. The dough may seem dry but will come together after mixed well.
  3. Roll a rounded tablespoon of dough into a ball and then place it in the muffin tin.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Recipe Notes
If you don't have self rising flour, you can make your own. For each cup of flour you add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. So for this recipe you would need to add a total of 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt since the recipe calls for 2 cups.

  1. So, did you wake up panicked that she didn’t wake up earlier?! I spent a night sleeping on the floor next to the crib the first night mine went more than 4 hours. She slept beautifully though 🙂
    Biscuits look yummy. Do you think yogurt could be subbed successfully? I have no issues with sour cream…but I always have Greek yogurt on hand.
    Thanks and sweet dreams.

      Yes. I thought she wasn’t okay so I kept checking on her. I definitely think yogurt could be substituted for the sour cream. Yogurt has a little bit more of a bitter taste.

  2. Oh my gosh!!! I am the exact same way about my bed sheets (and I can’t believe I am admitting this). It drives my husband absolutely bonkers!! I can’t sleep if the sheets are not just right so like you I have gotten out of bed at like 2 in the morning to fix the sheets so I can fall back to sleep. I hear you on the whole losing sleep after a newborn. I always feel like a walking zombie for the first three months! Congrats on getting her to sleep for 7 hours, that is truly amazing!!!!!!

    Reading your post makes me miss you even more:). Hire a baby sister (Alison is always great), and get some sleep my dear! How and when you get it all done amazes me!

  4. I’m having one of those tiring days… my head feels like it’s about to fall off 🙁 Putting this and the zuppa toscana on my to-make list for the weekend!

  5. I’m a little weird with my sheets too. When I get in bed, they have to be absolutely flat (no wrinkles under me) and the edge of the sheet folded perfectly over the comforter so I don’t feel it on my chin. I’t good to hear that someone else has a quirk like me. 🙂 Looking at those biscuits, I’d guess that they got the boys back on their feet right away. I do hope they’re better!

  6. These look so buttery good! I live how easy they are and I trust you on how delicious you say they are, so I’m gonna try them!!

    Congrats on the full night of dreamy sleep! Your Instagram pic of your boys made me cringe and smile at the same time! I felt so bad for you and your boys!

  7. oh girl…I SO feel you on the sleep. Lucy and I were up last night from 3 -5 am …and then I could never get back to sleep, so here I am. Makes you feel like a crazy person!! These biscuits are exactly what i need right now…simple and full of carbs 🙂

  8. This recipe looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it. 🙂

  9. That is funny about the sheets 🙂

  10. These caught my eye – they look yummy!

  11. These look so good! I’m a sucker for any kind of biscuit and can easily eat 20 (okay, maybe not THAT many but a lot). And, I came across bamboo sheets for the first time a few months ago on vacation and I fell in love with them. I could not believe how soft they are!

  12. Love these little biscuits! Perfect for sending home with dinner guests.

  13. I have all the ingredients for this! They look so good and I love that they’re mini 🙂

  14. if yogurt works…(to which I think it would) your limits are endless…. Vanilla, Blueberry, strawberry, mixed Berry mango…..oh wow….Cottage Cheese & Pineapple!
    THANK YOU for the inspiration!

  15. Yesterday I tried 2 batches… 1 sour cream 14% & 1 Blueberry Pomagranite (sp) Yogurt 1.5% they both turned out excellent and both we distinctively different.
    My husband described the sour cream one as slightly salty but very pleasant, the Yogurt as a little sweet but equally delicious; then he put the together like a sandwich and said they went neutral…lol
