Joining Sarah and friends today for my second edition of Pinning it Down
I think I saw these biscuits on my first day of using Pinterest and I knew they would make it to the table in the near future. It only took a few days. They were the hit of the meal, I must say, and my husband declared them the best biscuits he had ever eaten. I wasn't sure whether to be insulted or flattered, as I have been making biscuits from scratch for 25 years.
This recipe, since is starts with Biscuit, is not what I consider to be scratch, but the end result is pretty dang good. And if you are accustomed to canned biscuits (or no biscuits) you will be delighted with the end result. Yum. They would be a delicious addition to any breakfast or dinner (or a meal in an of themselves for lunch!).You might think that they will be sweet, with the 7up in them, but they were no sweeter than standard baking powder biscuits.
2 cups Bisquick*
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7up or other lemon lime soda like Sprite or Sierra Mist
1/4 cup butter
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a square nine-inch pan place 1/4 stick butter. Melt in microwave (or pour melted butter into pan).
In a bowl, combine baking mix, sour cream and soda pop. Stir with a spoon until liquid is incorporated. sprinkle surface with flour or additional baking mix. Pat dough into a 1/2 inch flat. Cut with a biscuit round (I got exactly nine biscuits). Place biscuits in pan in melted butter. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
*or similar baking mix like Jiffy -- which is much less expensive, or even homemade -- fyi, that link is untested by me
