Sour Cream and Chive Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 + 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
2 rounded tablespoons snipped chives or green onions
1 - 2 tablespoons melted butter, for brushing over tops
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or two knives scissor fashion until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl stir together milk and sour cream until mixture is almost smooth then stir in the chives.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the milk mixture. Using a wooden spoon stir just until the dough sticks together.
Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, flour your hands and knead about 10 times or until dough holds together.
Pat or roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter (I used a 2") or round cookie cutter and place on a parchment lined or non-stick baking sheet.
