7 UP Biscuits

A long time ago, I saw this recipe at and thought, I should really make those because they look really yummy.  Then, she posted the recipe again and said drop everything and make these biscuits.  This time I saved the recipe and promised that I would make them.  I finally put them on my list and went out and bought the sour cream and the 7 UP!!!  I was getting closer to tasting them instead of just looking at the picture on the internet.

I had two helpers to make these biscuits.  My mother measured the baking mix (from my homemade baking mix) and my son dumped them into the bowl.
Then my son did most of the stirring to mix in the sour cream.  He did a great job and my mom got a little bit at the end.

Then, I measured the 7UP and my son grabbed and poured it.  It was touch and go whether it was going to make it in the bowl but it did!!

It looked like we were going to have a mess on our hands with this dough so my mom stirred this time!

The dough was supposed to be sticky and then turn it out to roll on the counter top.  It looked really sticky but we followed the directions.  Luckily, my mom took off her rings before she started because she was covered in a sticky mess.

We used the spatula and spoons to get the dough back off her hands.  We mixed in a little more baking mix based on my mother's advice that she didn't pack the baking mix down enough when she filled the cups.  I am not 100% sure that it was only that since I was using homemade biscuit mix and not Bisquick but I guess I will never know.

Per the directions, I melted 1/4 c of butter in my 9 inch pan and then instead of putting the cut biscuits in the pan, we dropped them by spoonful.  It left a little bit of space in between but I thought it would be good enough since that is what we had to work with :)

I put them in the oven to bake and crossed our fingers since we really didn't know what would come out but we got this nicely browned pan of biscuits right in time for dinner.

They were super light and fluffy and I would totally make them again.  The recipe became even more appealing because I would rather spoon the batter in then rolling and cutting since it makes less dishes.  I might cover the top of the biscuits with butter while they are cooking to see if that makes them a little prettier and more yummy!  Would you like to try a buttered 7UP Biscuit??  Feel free to try this one or make your own.

Here is the original recipe so that you can make your own.  Take it with my advice that this dough is really sticky but worth it to try this super yummy roll.

7 UP Biscuits

2 cups Bisquick (or homemade biscuit mix)
1/2 cup sour cream (I used low fat)
1/2 cup 7-up (or any other lemon-lime soda like Sprite, Siera Mist)
1/4 cup melted butter (I used margarine)

Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.

Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out. Cut biscuits with biscuit cutter or glass. 

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan. Place cut biscuits in pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.
