I got this recipe from one of the girls at work. She said her mom makes it for them all the time. I’d never heard of biscuit dough made with 7-Up so I was really curious to try this. The biscuits turned out pretty good. The recipe makes a super sticky dough but if you sprinkle your work surface generously with extra bisquick before turning the dough out, and then sprinkle the top of the dough with more bisquick before patting it flat, it really helps a lot. You could substitute flour for sprinkling if you like.
- 4 cups bisquick baking mix
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup 7-up
- ½ cup butter
- Preheat oven to 425ºF.
- Place butter in a 9×13″ pyrex baking dish and put into oven to melt the butter.
- Remove baking dish from oven once butter is melted.
- Mix bisquick, sour cream and 7-Up together in a bowl. The dough will be very soft and sticky.
- Sprinkle extra bisquick onto work surface and turn dough out.
- Sprinkle a little more bisquick on top of dough.
- With your hands, gently pat the dough to about 1-inch thick or so. These biscuits don’t rise very much so you want to have your dough be fairly thick.
- Cut out 12 circles using a biscuit cutter or an overturned glass.
- Arrange biscuits on top of melted butter in baking dish. A bench scraper or spatula helps to transfer the soft dough from the work surface to the baking dish.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Note: I like to cut 2½-inch diameter biscuits which fill up my baking pan nicely, but you can certainly cut them larger or smaller. It’s up to you to decide what size you want your biscuits.
