Sour Dough Biscuits by mistake....

 I woke up hungry for a biscuit...

and, well....
MORE than just ONE.

I always keep Self Rising Flour in my freezer for a 

...just add your shortening and milk...

I had a carton of Sour Cream so a tablespoon of it went into the mix..
I LUV Sour Cream Biscuits.

When I reached for the milk, I discovered NO MILK....
except soured BUTTERMILK...
I hesitate to use the word CLABBER...
so many young people may not know what it is....but it is soured buttermilk.

I had already added the Sour Cream...
and now I added CLABBERED MILK...

and came up with SOUR DOUGH BISCUITS
that were so good, I wanted to slap my SOUTHERN pappy....


Nope, I didn't add the CHERRY PRESERVES to the biscuit mix....

but, I surely added it to the cooked biscuits...:)

I buy the Cherry preserves and the Apricot preserves at the same time and alternate each morning....

I'd be hard pressed to choose a favorite.

I do love preserves.......those bits of fruit just take it all  over the top for me.

Since I was in a bit of a rush, I used the DROP BISCUIT method..
 saved a little time not rolling and cutting ea. biscuit
and they taste the exact same.

Also, the bottoms are crispy....just the way we like them...!!

Get you a small package of SELF RISING FLOUR,
keep it in the freezer to keep it fresh,
most packages have the recipe on the back...
actually, as I said, you only add milk and shortening.
(if you like SOUR as I did and add both SOUR CREAM
and BUTTERMILK...(clabbered if possible.)

This is so quick and you can make them before you go to work...
be SURE to make extras for toasted biscuit halves the next morning....

For cinnamon biscuits....
slice biscuit, add butter, sugar (I use sugar sub) and lots of cinnamon...
slide those little biscuit halves under the broiler and..... so good.

OH, YES....
I do know this kind of food isn't good for the body...
we have to also feed our soul
is a mighty fine SOUL FOOD.

  1. I love biscuits and jelly...they remind me of my grandpa who couldn't eat a meal without them!


  2. You always make me hungry for buttermilk biscuits. I buy the Polaner all fruit preserves, strawberry is my fav or blackberry. It's so sweet, it doesn't need sugar! I'll bring the jam....if you'll bake the biscuits! Hugs!

  3. Oh BJ I always come away from your posts hungry - and here I with another two hours until I get home for a bite. These biscuits look so very good - and I like mine with a bit a crispy crust too!

  4. Yes - Thank you! I will have one with cherry or strawberry preserves. LOL
    I gave up many years ago trying to make decent biscuits - and yes, I am from the South! LOL

  5. I love homemade biscuits! And i just realized I haven't had any buttermilk for years. Now I want some!!

  6. I wanted biscuits tonight with my fresh green beans that I cooked all day with salt pork, yum yum. I put a couple of potatoes in the last hours of cooking and had fresh tomatoes, radishes and cukes. It would have been so much better if I would have had some of your biscuits. Thanks for the recipe - they sure looked good.

  7. Oh, those biscuits look,so delicious! I want some of them!😉

  8. Wow! Those biscuits look delicious. Your posts always have the tastiest looking photos in blogland!

  9. You can create a sense of cozy kitchen, hearth, and home quicker than any blogger I know!

  10. I never had real homemade biscuits. Just the ones in the can or freezer

  11. That is my kind of biscuit ... crisp on the bottom and not a lot of 'fluff' in the middle. I usually pull out part of the middle (give it to Mr. Z.) so then I have a thin crispy bottom and top too. Love preserves over jelly so I get bits of fruit. Thanks for making everyone hungry. Love drop biscuits and less mess.

  12. Oh- I can almost smell that biscuit baking from here! Yum!!! Nothing like a hot biscuit. I like them with honey and butter but preserves sounds good, too! xo Diana ps . That is a great anniversary picture at the top!;>)

  13. Oh yum! Of all the jams I've made and tried, I've never had cherry! It's on the list:@)

  14. By the time I leave your corner of Blog Land, I'm always either hungry or happy, and sometimes I'm both. These look delicious, and I had never heard the term "clabbered". I have lost a carton of buttermilk so long in the back of my fridge that it was downright CLOBBERED instead. Most of the time, though, I have something curdling up in there to use.

    And I didn't know that about freezing the self rising flour. I always have it on hand, but I don't use it as regularly as the other flour. I shall start putting some in the freezer. Thanks!

  15. Oh yes! I'll have one of those, please:) I AM one of those olden enough to know what clabbered means! Love seeing what you are cooking up in your pretty kitchen! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  16. You have ruined me! I do believe you are the Queen of Biscuits! I can't look at a biscuit and not think of you. I am going to try these out. They look so good how could you not?

  17. Another wonderful food post. The biscuits sound delicious and do they ever look good. Thanks for sharing your great recipe with us. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  18. Mmmm....these look so delish! I love the idea of the cinnamon biscuits under the broiler. I bet they would do well in the toaster oven too. I am almost 60 years old and have never had cherry preserves! I will definitely have to try it. Thanks for the yummy inspiration!

  19. Why do I always get so hungry when I visit here? lol! The biscuits looks so good and I love your presentation!
    Enjoy your Friday and weekend!!

  20. sweet bakin' Southern DO maketh me smile. I adore busquits..and now I think I must have some of these in the morning...or something...anything with butter and jam. (Mine has to be strawberry but I will be heading to the store and this is on my list for sure!) make my heart sing when you come up with morning goodies like these.
    I haven't had cherry preserves in forever. are you anyway?? :)

  21. Oh mercy, now I need a biscuit!!

  22. Hi BJness! Your daughter looks just like you and has your beautiful smile! Now I have made your regular biscuits many times and just love them. So I know I'll try these for sure. You always feed me good! I know your move to your new place has been a great change and I'm looking forward to our adventure too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  23. Hi B.J.
    I would just love some of your Hot Sour Dough Biscuits with some butter and jelly, that is so good! Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Be safe and come back soon!

  24. I'm always hesitant to use milk or buttermilk past the expiration date. Silly, I know. I use powdered milk in those cases when my milk is out of date. I think next time, I'll go ahead and try it.


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.
