Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Drizzle in 6 tablespoons melted butter and mix lightly with your hands to distribute butter. Make a well in the center of the bowl; add sour cream and scallions. Mix with a wooden spoon until no dry spots remain and a shaggy dough forms.

  • Drop 1/2-cupfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them at least 1 1/2 inch apart. Brush tops with remaining 2 tablespoons butter; sprinkle with paprika.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops and bottoms are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

These biscuits can also be baked in a 12-inch cast iron skillet, arranged so the sides are just touching.

These reheat well! Just pop back into a 350-degree oven for 5 minutes.

6.19.19 Half-cup biscuits are HUGE and they certainly did spread out so don't place too closely on the baking sheet. They're way too big for us but that s easy enough to fix. Next time I m going to measure out some 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup and see which one we like better. Had to cook about 5 additional minutes for them to be done. Don't skip the paprika that really helps the biscuit's eye appeal The biscuit is fairly flat but the flavor is very good texture a bit heavy and just a little doughy but we liked them well enough to make again. And oh my are they ever to easy to make. Read More
