How to make 7-UP Biscuits?
Almost all recipes for 7UP Biscuits call for Bisquick. If you have it on hand, by all means, use it. If you don't, all you need is flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening.
- Combine all in a mixing bowl and add sour cream. Stir in.
- Add 7UP and stir well. The dough will be sticky and shaggy.
- Flour your countertop and place the dough onto the surface and shape into a rectangle or square (depending on the baking pan you are using).
- Cut the dough into biscuits.
- Melt butter and place into the baking dish. Place biscuits in butter and bake in 450 degrees F.
- Once done, let them cool and serve while still warm.
- This recipe is very simple and can be easily doubled or even tripled.
How to cut the biscuits?
To cut the biscuits, you can use a round biscuit cutter. Since they are baked in a dish, I wanted to use the whole dough at once. To do that, simply cut the biscuit dough with a knife, into square biscuits. I formed my dough into 9"x7" rectangle and cut it into 8 biscuits.
