If you've seen any of my other recipes - you knew this would be part of the line-up. I've add some variations below the basic recipe. Man can not live on basic biscuits alone lol. There is a cinnamon biscuit, cheddar garlic, cheddar jalapeno, and cheddar jalapeno bacon. Enjoy!

FOR CHEDDAR JALAPENO BACON:

2 slice

1 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut in cold margarine about 4 tablespoons at a time dotted on top of the mixture. I use a whisk to push margarine into the mixture incorporating until no large piece remain. Continue to do this until you have used all the margarine and the mixture resembles cornmeal.
2
At this time if you making one of the variations add those ingredients now and stir to combine.
3
In a small bowl whisk together milk and sour cream until smooth. Make a well in your flour mixture and add milk mixture all at once. Fold flour in until it is just moistened. Then turn onto surface to knead. Knead only until it holds together. Roll to between 3/4 inch and 1 inch.
4
I don't have a biscuit cutter so I use a half pint jelly jar as my cutter... works very well. Place your cut biscuits on baking sheet. Rub tops with softened margarine. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Don't over bake you don't want tough biscuits. When done brush with melted butter. If you are making garlic or cinnamon biscuits sprinkle with appropriate topping.
