Upside Down Praline Sour Cream Biscuits

Diane Atherton


A perfect soft biscuit with a crunchy praline top to go with a cup a coffee in the morning.

These would be nice to wake up to on Christmas or Thanksgiving morning or just for a special treat.

I use a cast iron skillet whenever I make biscuits. If you don't have cast iron, you could use a baking pan or glass dish.

If you don't care for raisins, leave them out. Add a little cinnamon if you like a cinnamon roll.

Hope you enjoy!
