Minimizing wastage of sour cream!- Mozzarella bites

with 3 comments

After that chocolate cake, I was left with 1/4 cup of sour cream… how to use up such a itsy bitsy bit of sour cream??? Besides, I was feeling lazy…. so it had to be something easy!

Mozzarella Bites

adapted from

Ingredients (i divided the recipe by three because i only had that much sour cream)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (I omited this because i hate baking soda. =P)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water (used milk instead)
  • 2 tbsp of mozzarella cheese because my mother wanted me to clear it up… don’t ask.


  1. Mix together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Add sour cream and mix to a soft dough. Add additional water if necessary.
  2. With well floured hands shape dough into round biscuit shapes. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 12 minutes.

  1. Hi,

    just wondering, when did you add the mozarella?

    • Hi Kate,

      I added it after it formed into a dough, before i form the round shapes. =) It’s best eaten immediately after it exits the oven, hot. It’s apparently not as nice when it’s cool because the cheese hardens.
