Sour Cream Chive Biscuits Biscuits are a classic southern staple, and to make yours as mile high as possible, mix the dough together right before baking and use ice cold butter for the flakiest texture. I love these savory biscuits with a touch of honey and butter, still warm from the oven. • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1 tablespoon baking powder • 1 teaspoon salt • 1/4 cup butter, cold and cubed • 2/3 cup sour cream • 2 tablespoons chives, snipped Pre heat to 450
