By now you all are probably more than well aware of my penchant for unusual ingredients. Case in point, my recently posted Grape Jelly Glazed Meatloaf. So it was only natural when I spotted this recipe, currently running rampant on the web, that I just had to give them a try. I am a huge biscuit fan, and always looking for something new. I don’t keep soda on hand, as a rule, so had to buy a liter bottle of Seven Up for just the half cup called for, but it was well worth it. These are sensational. They are hard to describe, really. The outside has a crispness uncommon to most biscuits that I’ve tried, the inside is like a cloud. These are the lightest, fluffiest, most delicious biscuits that I think I’ve ever had. Word of warning, they are very light, so if you like to pile your biscuits with lots of jelly or other toppings, they may just crumble under the weight. A light spread of butter and perhaps a dollop of your favorite jam is all you need. These will take you to biscuit heaven!
Seven Up Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
½ cup sour cream
½ cup 7-Up or other lemon lime soda
3 Tbsp. butter, melted, divided
Preheat oven to 450°F.
In the work bowl of a food processor combine the baking mix and sour cream just until blended. Add the 7-Up and pulse until incorporated. The dough will be very tender. Sprinkle some additional baking mix on your working surface and carefully shape the dough into a 9-inch square. This isn’t easy; it is a very light, rather sticky dough. Using a very sharp knife, cut dough into 9 squares. Pour 2 of the Tbsp. of melted butter into a 9-inch square baking dish. Be sure the butter coats the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden. Brush tops of biscuits with remaining melted butter.
