Well Butter My Butt & Call Me a Biscuit

Dang; it has been soooo long since I posted; where the heck does the time go???? Got this quickie butt kickn' Biscuit Recipe from a "back in the day" friend & thought it was a great way to get back to blogging. Thinking of getting back on the horse & posting up some buttery goodness to get into the mood for falling into Fall & this seemed an easy way to get going + I didn't have to cook or take pictures!

Sour Cream Biscuits
Here is a butterific Sour Cream Biscuit that will pare up perfect with a late summer fruit preserves or jam. Still some plums, peaches, blackberries, apples & more out there in the fields that take only a quick tour of the kitchen to make into a magical concoction of lip smackn' goodness. I am going to sample these bad boys with a rustic spiked (yeah baby ~ breakfast of champions always starts with a little kick) fig jam from Kiss My Spatula.

This quick, simple & devilishly sinful recipe + pix are from Eleanor Roper all the way from Long Island. Aren't they the cutest little morsels of butterness you ever saw!?! Be still my heart.

Sour Cream Biscuits

2 1/2 C self rising flour
1 1/4 C sour cream or creme fraiche
softened butter for brushing when done.

Butter up a cake pan. Preheat oven 450 degrees for 10 -12 min. Sift or whisk 2 cup of flour in wide bowl..make a deep hollow and put a cup of the sour cream into it...stir with rubber spatula and mix it well.(I added a little heavy cream too, not much.)
Sprinkle, lightly, flour on board..turn dough once, sprinkle with a tad of flour, fold the dough in half and pat into a 1/3 round. Cut with 2" biscuit cutter...add more flour if needed as you re purpose the left over scraps for more biscuits. Bake ~ After 4 min. of baking, rotate the pan and finish baking. When done, remove from pan and brush with BUTTER! Yum!!!
