7-Up Biscuits

Someone sent me this recipe for 7-Up Biscuits, probably one of my kids. They are always asking me to try a new recipe they have found on-line or from a magazine.

It's hard to believe that these biscuits only have 4 ingredients, especially after tasting them! They come out light and fluffy and mix up easily so are great if you're in a hurry or short on time.

We rarely have soda (or pop as we call it in most of Ohio), and try to stay away from high fructose corn syrup, which is what 99% of soda is made with. I did find a soda made with real sugar called Sierra Mist so I used that in the recipe instead of 7-Up and the biscuits still came out delicious.

Also I use real butter.  It's best not to eat all those fake foods with fake ingredients.  
(Yes, my daughter Alexis, I know now that margarine is really bad for me, I quit.  happy?)

Sierra Mist: soda made with sugar

I'm pretty sure these are fattening and definitely not a diet food, but they are a great “comfort food” when that's the only thing that will do.

Mix baking mix and sour cream
Tips and Suggestions:
  • This recipe can be doubled
  • You can substitute diet soda for regular
  • You can substitute fat-free sour cream or Greek yogurt for regular
  • You can substitute Jiffy Baking Mix
  • Self-rising flour does work instead of the baking mix with OK results
  • These are great served with Beef or Chicken Stew poured over them

7-Up Biscuits

2 cups Bisquick Baking Mix
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-Up soda
1/4 cup melted real butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix the sour cream into your Bisquick mix.
You can use a fork, pastry cutter or your fingers.
You just want to make sure that the wet ingredient gets mix in well with the dry ingredients.

Melt butter in baking dish and then add cut biscuits

Stir in 1/2 cup 7 Up. The dough will be very soft, and that's OK.
Sprinkle a little Bisquick mix onto the counter.
Knead and fold dough until coated with the Bisquick mix. Do not use too much Bisquick or over knead.

Pat dough out with your fingers, don't use a rolling pin.
Cut biscuits using a round biscuit or cookie cutter.

Melt butter and pour into a 9-inch square pan.
Place the cut biscuits on top of melted butter in the pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown.

Canning season is nearly here and soon I'll be busy with tomatoes, green beans and corn from our garden.  It's been in or close to the 90's here so being indoors canning is not a bad thing this time of year.
