You only need 4 simple ingredients for these light and fluffy 7UP biscuits!
Servings 9 biscuits (using a 2-inch round cutter)
- ¼ cup (half of a stick) melted butter, plus extra for brushing
- 2 cups Bisquick all-purpose baking mix
- ½ cup (4 ounces) full-fat sour cream, cold
- ½ cup 7UP soda (or other lemon-lime soda), cold
Pour the melted butter into an 8-inch baking dish, or into a 9-inch or 10-inch cast iron skillet.
Place the Bisquick in a large mixing bowl. Add the sour cream. Using a pastry cutter, fork, or two knives, cut the sour cream into the baking mix until little pea-size clumps form.
Pour in the soda and stir just until combined and there are no pockets of dry flour.
Turn the dough onto a well-floured work surface. Flour your hands and fold the dough over onto itself 6-8 times. Pat the dough into a rectangle that’s about 1-inch thick.
Use a floured round biscuit cutter to punch out the biscuits (do not twist the cutter). Arrange the biscuits in the pan with the melted butter. Re-roll the scraps and cut out additional biscuits.
Cover the biscuits with plastic wrap, and chill in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425°F.
Bake the biscuits until golden brown on top, about 20-25 minutes. Brush the warm biscuits with 1-2 more tablespoons of melted butter.
- 7up biscuits from scratch: if you don't have any Bisquick, you can make these 7up biscuits with flour instead. To do so, prepare your own homemade "Bisquick" using a recipe like this one, which is combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and vegetable shortening.
- Larger batch: if you're serving a bigger group, double all of the ingredients and bake the 7-up biscuits in a 9x13 dish.
- 7-up biscuits with ginger ale: for a slightly different flavor profile, swap out the lemon lime soda and use ginger ale instead.
- Fold in some grated cheese for even more savory flavor.
- Keep the ingredients as cold as possible to help the biscuits rise high.
- This is a very soft dough, and can be quite sticky, so keep the counter well-floured, and add plenty of flour to your hands and to your biscuit cutter.
- Use unsalted butter instead of the salted butter if you prefer a less-salty biscuit.
- Don't overmix the dough. It's very soft, so use a gentle hand. Stir just until all of the ingredients come together and you don't see any dry pockets of flour. Over-mixing will result in tough, dense biscuits.
- In lieu of 7UP, you can also use diet 7UP (or other sugar-free soda), Sprite, or another lemon-lime soda.
