Green Onion & Pepper Mini Biscuits: Fast & Fabulous Party Food

Terri Pischoff Wuerthner
This is such an easy recipe for biscuits, as the dough is patted out rather than rolled and cut. It's a recipe that we often use to introduce children to baking.

Some Baking Tips: The butter that is incorporated into the flour should be cold, and cut in several small pieces as both these factors help the biscuits turn out tender, and the butter cut in small pieces makes the incorporation process quicker.

Handle all dough gently; for a light, flaky result, don't over mix the dough.

Yield: About 36 Biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil for greasing pan
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped green onions
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup sour cream

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a baking sheet with the peanut oil.

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the pieces of butter and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or fork, to the size of coarse crumbs.

Stir green onions into mixture. Combine egg and sour cream and add to the flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Mix the dough with your hands, if necessary, as it will be stiff. But don't over mix.

Place dough on a lightly floured board and, using a light touch, press into a two 8-inch squares; cut each square into 12 biscuits. Bake on prepared baking sheet for about 18 minutes, or until light golden.
