These soft and delicious 7-Up Biscuits are hardly a new idea and have been around forever, but boy are they good.
I wanted to try them because I really love biscuits. These are very good, very rich and very tender.
|Easy to make|
It’s important here not to dump all the lemon sodapop in at one time. Mix in the sour cream, almost like cutting shortening into a pie crust is the best I can describe it. Then add a little sodapop, and stir. Add just enough of the sodapop to form a cohesive dough that you can handle. If you dump in the entire amount of liquid, you can and probably will, end up with a really hot mess. The secret here is adding the pop bit by bit until you get the right consistency.
The flavor and the crumb are perfect and I can really see these with some of the sausage gravy recipe from my casserole.
- 3 cups baking mix (i.e. Bisquick)
- ¾ cup sour cream
- ¾ cup lemon-lime soda/pop or any clear carbonated beverage
- 4 tbs melted butter
- additional flour/baking mix for kneading
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Pour melted butter into a 11x7-inch baking pan.
- Mix the baking mix, sour cream. Add just enough sodapop to make a soft dough that you can handle.
- Turn out on well floured surface and knead a few times. Pat the dough down to about ½-3/4-inch in height.
- Using a well-floured biscuit or cookie cutter, cut out biscuits and place in prepared pan. Try to line 3 across the short side and 4 down the long side.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. I brushed the tops with some butter from the pan after about 10 minutes in the oven.
- Makes about 12 biscuits
