Tasty Tuesdays: Feta, Chive, & Sour Cream Biscuits


Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays!

I've been cooking again and it feels so good - I missed it!  I made these biscuits over the holidays to bring to a family Christmas get-together.   The original recipe is from one of my favorite food blogs - Joy the Baker.  See the recipe right here.

- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 3/4 cup sour cream, cold
- 1/3 cup chopped chives
- 3/4 cup big crumbles of feta cheese
- 1 egg beaten for egg wash
- coarse sea salt, cracked black pepper, and smoky paprika for topping

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper (or Silpat mats) and set aside.

2.  In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and black pepper. Cut in butter, using a pastry cutter, until mixture resembles a coarse meal. In another bowl, combine egg, sour cream, and water. Beat lightly with a fork. Add to flour mixture all at once, stirring enough to make a soft and dough. Add the chives and feta. Place dough on a pastry mat and knead the dough together. The mixture will come together in about 10 to 15 kneads.

3.  Roll or pat out into a 1-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch rounds using a biscuit cutter or glass.  Reshape and roll dough to create more biscuits with excess scraps. Place biscuits on baking sheets.  

4.  Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and paprika. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve warm. These biscuits are best eaten the day they’re made, but will last up to 2 days.

{ Yield:  20 biscuits }

I loved these biscuits.  They tasted bast right out of the oven.  I recommend eating them right away!  They didn't taste quite as good later in the day when I brought them to my party.

  12. Ooooh, those look delicious! Lovely photos. I'm linking up my chocolate mousse (with a secret ingredient!).

  13. HAD to pin those biscuits. Yum!

    This week I shared a couple of posts: the first is Clarinda Chicken, a 15-minute supper idea. "Got Tax Return" is a list of ideas to spend it on that will be more valuable in the long run than a new TV or iGadget.

    Thank you for hosting!

  14. Your biscuits look absolutely delicious!! I am going to have to see if I can make a vegan version for my family.

  15. Yummy selections at your party. Thanks for hosting.

  16. Looks so delicious! I see from the pic you used green onions/scallions. Were you out of chives or chose to substitute?
