When my mom dropped her homemade rolls while on the way to my house one Thanksgiving, I improvised and whipped up a batch of these buttery bite-sized biscuits. Since then they've been part of our traditional Thanksgiving meal. —Beverly Raleigh, Tulsa, Oklahoma


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Place flour in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream until just until moistened.
  2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls into ungreased miniature muffin cups. Bake at 450° for 11-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
