Elsie's Biscuits

This Recipe was found in Southern Living's 1997 Annual Recipe's book. I made these biscuits everyday in my Cafe and everyone loved them!

  • Yield: 24 servings
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Cook time: 10 Minutes


  • 3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) butter or 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup(s) sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) vanilla


Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter and blend with a pastry blender until mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs, then add the other ingredients. Stir only until combined. Toss the dough in a little flour and pat it down with hands, do not roll it. When it's 1/2" thick cut into biscuits and place on lightly greased pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes in a hot oven of 450*. When they are light and golden, they are perfect. Makes 8 large, 15 medium or 24-30 little biscuits.
