You've probably seen the recipe before. I come across it frequently on Pinterest and finally decided to try it out.

As far as recipes go it couldn't be any simpler...four ingredients. And since three of the ingredients get cooked in the forth, melted butter, they are quite tasty.

What you'll need:

4 cups Bisquick
1 cup sour cream
1 cup 7 Up  (Notice it is a cup of the soda and not a whole can.)
1/2 cup butter, melted

What you'll do:

Melt the butter and pour it into a baking dish.
Mix together the sour cream and Bisquick.
Stir in the 7 Up.
Place dough on a well floured surface, use your hands to flatten it out until it is about an inch thick.
*Cut the biscuits out.
(The dough is really sticky and you may need to dip your cutter into flour after each cut.)
Place the biscuits in the buttered pan.
Bake at 425 degrees or until a nice golden brown.

This recipe made two dozen biscuits. I cut it in half and used gluten free Bisquick in a smaller batch and they turned out fine.

They didn't really rise so if you're expecting a big fluffy biscuit you are bound to be disappointed. However, they do have a good flavor and I think would do well on the breakfast table...especially paired with some jam or honey. We don't drink soda on a regular basis so it's not exactly an on-hand recipe for me but I will keep it in the make again pile :-)

*In the past I've just always used a regular glass to cut out biscuits, no big deal, right? This time I wised up and used what the kids refer to as our fancy glasses. It was like having a nice handle on the cutter. I guess I could break down and buy a actual biscuit cutter since Sarah and I both seem to be delving into bread making but I don't think it would be as fun to use as the fancy glass.
