Knowing that I would have to extract myself for work this weekend, I had a holed up day yesterday that started with the easiest, tangiest biscuits on the planet. Last week my mom asked me, “have you ever used self-rising flour?” Me: Yes, in a supereasy baby food cupcake recipe. “Well, this biscuit recipe calls for just two ingredients: self-rising flour and sour cream.” Two ingredient (I suppose you can argue the case that self-rising flour is more than “one ingredient” but humor me) biscuits?! Say no more. I tried it out with an added lemon kick. They were so tender and tart and comforting with raspberry jam and hot tea. I have all sorts of plans for this biscuit base now.
Three Ingredient Lemon Biscuits
Enhanced from the recipe in Endangered Recipes
Makes 10 or so
Preheat oven to 425-degrees
(Using a fork) mix together 1 C self-rising flour, 1 C sour cream, juice & zest of 1 Lemon
Turn out onto floured surface and roll to preferred thickness (sticky dough – just keep extra flour on hand)
Bake about 12 minutes
You too can prevent recipe extinction!
