7UP Biscuits


What?  Yep, that's right, 7up biscuits.  Some places on the internets call these Popeye's Biscuits - I guess they taste like the biscuits from the chicken place.  All I know is that these were the best biscuits that I've ever made - hands down!  They were light and fluffy.  They only have three ingredients - quick and easy!  We had them with dinner but I will make them again for breakfast.  Chicken Legs wants a biscuit with bacon and cheese - YUM!





7up Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 450.
Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.
Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan.  Place cut biscuits in pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Sounds easy and they look perfect - I think even I could make those.

  2. I'm intrigued, I totally want to try those.

  3. I have had those many times and they absolutely rock! We called them Popeye's too, because that was my favorite chicken fast food joint.

  4. that is 2 in a row with bisquick...now I have to go get some!

  5. These are one of my favorites also! Love them!!

  6. I can't wait to try these!!

  7. Ooh, those look fantastic. I don't care for KFC or fast food places like that, but I do love their biscuits. These look just like them and how awesome to use 7Up.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wow, these are great! I couldn't get them off my mind when I saw them. I am going to post them with a link soon. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I've made a similar biscuit and the only difference in the recipe is that mine has 1/3 cup of sugar instead of the 7-Up! I might have to try your version. Either way, my mouth is watering just thinking about them!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Finally tried these yesterday. Wow, everyone was surprised. They all got eaten with butter and honey before I could get a picture. Just how does that happen?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I will be making these with my daughter this week. Question?? Do you use 7 up from a can or 2 liter OR does it matter? May sound silly to ask but I find a difference between the can vs the bottle. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lisa - it doesn't matter. Either one is fine. I usuallly buy a 2 liter and make these several times.

    ReplyDelete
  13. These are definitely going on my RecipeBoy's list of things to make. So fun! Thank (Kevinand)Amanda for pointing them out! Happy 4th!

    ReplyDelete
  14. These look fantastic! :) Do you think I could make these with diet 7-up or does it need to be regular for the sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Jenny - I've never made them with Diet 7up, but I think it would work fine. If you try it let me know how they turn out.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I personally would advise you to avoid the diet 7Up. I've noticed that when you cook with diet soda, the artificial sweetener tends to turn a little bitter. But i'm not much of a diet soda drinker so maybe I'm more sensitive to the artificial sweetener.

  17. I made them twice this week, once with regular 7Up and once with diet. They were definitely better with the regular. The texture and look was the same with the diet soda, but the flavor was definitely not as good as with the regular. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! It's delicious and so easy. I definitely have my go-to biscuit recipe! :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jenny - thanks so much for reporting back about the Diet 7UP! I've always wondered how it would turn out. Looks like I keep buying regular 7UP.

  20. Since baking is an exact science, does the 7up need to be cold or room temperature?

    ReplyDelete
  21. wandy269 - I always use room temperature, but I'm not sure it makes a difference.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I tried these last night and the dough was so sticky I couldn't get it off my fingers! They didn't turn out right....what am I doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Do you for them into biscuits before putting them in the pan, and how???

    ReplyDelete
  24. @dmwhitaker - try adding more bisquick until it is barely sticky - it is a soft dough, just don't add too much or they will be dry.

    @Anisha - I used a round cookie cutter to cut the biscuits out before I put them in the pan. Make sure to add bisquick to the board when you pat the dough out so they don't stick.

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOVE the looks of these! Is there a UK alternative to bisquick that I could use do you know? :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Emma - you can make your own -

    2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons baking powder
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup shortening

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my goodness, I tried these tonight and they were WONDERFUL! :) Do you think these could be made and frozen (unbaked)?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ashley - I don't see why they wouldn't freeze. I will have to experiment with that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I found your blog through pintrest and am in love! I tried these tonight using FF sour cream and i can't believe it's not butter spray (trying to maintain my girlish figure) and don't think I used enough bisquick since the FF sour cream isn't as thick. I had to scoop them with an ice cream scoop but they baked great and tasted amazing! The hubby can't wait for breakfast. Thanks!

  30. I need some help mine did not rise atnall what am I doing wrong?

  32. Wow, These were great. My biscuits usually turn out like rocks. My family LOVED these.

    ReplyDelete
  33. could you use seltzer water in place of the 7-up?

    ReplyDelete
  34. granny1940 - if you use seltzer water you would need to add some sugar to the mixture.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Okay, I just HAD to comment here. I found your site from Pinterest and I am SO GLAD that I did. I have been making your stuff left and right for the past couple of weeks and we love it! I just made these biscuits on a whim because they looked so good and I happened to have all the ingredients. Almost...I had a can of Sprite in the fridge and Pioneer Baking Mix is in my pantry rather than Bisquick. Let me tell you...these are ABSOLUTELY BLOW YOUR MIND AMAZING! I honestly cannot believe how fantastic they were. I was SO sceptical as I was mixing it up and more than a little worried that I had Sprite on hand rather than 7-Up. I worried for nothing...these are outrageous! The way the butter on the bottom creates that crunchy buttery outside is crazy awesome and they are so light and fluffy! Cooking is my passion and I do it a LOT, but I have never made a biscuit that was up to my high standards and it drove me crazy. Those days are over! :-) I cannot thank you enough for this recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just made these. Thanks for the idea. I only had sprite zero in the house so that is what I used. They were delish!

    ReplyDelete
  37. they look so yummy, how long do you cook yours for?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think I'm in love Stephanie! Thanks for sharing this recipe. *print*

    ReplyDelete
  39. Finally, I can make decent biscuits! My mom could make the most wonderful biscuits from scratch, but the only edible ones I could make came from whomping a can on the counter (and we all know they're nothing like homemade). I found this recipe on Pinterest, made them just now, and heard angels singing when I took the first amazing bite -- thank you, thank you, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  40. About how long do they cook in the oven?

    ReplyDelete
  41. These are so light and feathery it's unbelievable! I've made them twice & they've turned out the same each time. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  42. thank you SO much for this! I'm going to make these using gluten free Bisquick. my daughter will be thrilled to have GOOD biscuits again!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I made these recently - except gluten free. They were so yummy! I blogged them here: http://frommytinykitchen.blogspot.com/2011/09/gluten-free-7up-biscuits.html

    Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I make this same recipe using Ginger Ale. They are the best biscuits EVER!! I think the secret is the butter on the bottom. I also brush the tops of mine with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you so much for sharing this and many of your other recipes. I've tried making biscuits several times and these are by far the BEST I've made. I love the tangyness of the sour cream.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hey Steph!
    I made these last weekend and they turned out perfect. I posted them and linked back to you - thanks for sharing your recipe :)

  47. This is the 2nd thing I have made from your blog...these were delicious thanks for sharing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I made these 10/2/2011 and they were a success! You must have more Bisquick on hand than the recipe calls for because the dough is SO moist

    ReplyDelete
  49. Just made these and my husband ate five. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I made these last night and they didn't rise, how thick to you pat the dough out to prior to cutting them? I may have pat them down too much or something. I want to make them again but would love some pointers to make them better

    ReplyDelete
  51. Did you cut them out with a cutter? I seemed to have a sticky mess and just did drop biscuits. What did I miss? Cannot wait to try these!! The reviews sound fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lindsay - I put a little more bisquick on the counter and a little more on top of the dough before I cut them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. thank you so much!! double it tonight and just the aroma in the kitchen was enough to gain 5 pounds!
    I love it and FB it also!
    wonderful!
    Gonna make more tomorrow and try cutting them out for smaller, but oh my these are good!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thank you for such a great recipe. I made these last night and my whole family thoroughly enjoyed them. They were even delicious this morning!

  59. Sass Class - I use a 3 or 4 inch round cutter

    ReplyDelete
  60. Do you think I could use greek yogurt instead of sour cream? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Margrett - I do think greek yogurt would work

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm lousy at making biscuits which is bad when you are southern. But these were easy and fantastic, thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was worried about how close to put them and I basically had just the tiniest margins between them, they were still perfect. I baked mine for 12 mins b/c I tend to like things lighter.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I tried this recipe the other night for a big family gathering and my biscuits came out flat and the butter burned...I followed the recipe exactly however my 7-up wasn't chilled. Do you know what might have gone wrong? Did I mix it too long maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Also, I was wondering if you have a trick on transferring the cut biscuits to the pan. The dough was so soft they were falling apart!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Jessica - I usually add some flour or Bisquick to the counter before I pat the dough out. I also dust the top of the dough with a little more flour/Bisquick. The dough is very soft. You want to make sure not to over mix it - just mix it until the Bisquick is combined. You could also just pat the dough in the pan and cut them into squares directly in the pan like the "Butter Dips" on my site.

    Not sure why they were flat. Make sure the Bisquick is fresh and maybe don't roll them as thin.

    I bake my biscuits in a stoneware pan - I think that helps keep them from burning. You could try a glass dish as well.

    ReplyDelete
  67. THese were great. Mine stayed a little flat....how thick do you cut yours? My bisquick is brand new. Also, the picture showed it baked in a glass dish so that is what I used...my oven is a bit finicky, so stoneware sometimes work better. After reading that you typically use stoneware I will do that next time. They are very tasty!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I know it depends on the size, but how many would you say this averages? And if I were going to just use the direct to pan thought, what size pan do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  69. I was having a hard time making these... way too runny to cut the dough out. So now I do it this way... I pack the bisquick in the measuring cups very densely. Once mixed, I don't pour it out like the author suggests. Instead, since I mix it in my stand mixer, I scoop out with an ice cream scooper (not over loaded, just even with the scooper). I use a 9x13 pan, and make 12 evenly sized biscuits. I made a double batch today for Thanksgiving tomorrow! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  70. How thick do you roll it out? Mine seemed thin and I rolled out 15. Did I do something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I get about 9 - 10 biscuits when I make them. I pat the dough out into about a 9x9 square and then cut them out

    ReplyDelete
  72. Wow! These look fabulous and super easy. Seems to have great reviews too. Can't wait to give it a shot!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have tried these 4 or 5 times and can not ever pat it out, or cut them without the dough becoming so sticky.. even with putting some bisquick on the counter and on my hands.. I have to scrub the counter for like 15 mins to get it off. Idk what I'm doing wrong.. they still taste ok but I would love to be able to make them the right way? I may try the ice cream scoop suggestion above..

    ReplyDelete
  74. Thanks so much for this recipe! I found it via pinterest and now we love these biscuits at our house! One thing I've noticed, the dough is completely different if you use 7-up that's already been opened rather than opening a new bottle. New is definitely better. If it's even a little flat I have to add more bisquick to get it to be a useable dough. I am going to look for small cans of 7up instead of using 2 liters. Also, to cut down on mess I flour a cookie pan and spread the dough out on that. It seems easier to clean the pan than the counter or table.

    ReplyDelete
  75. To everyone having issues with them being too sticky, I would either densely pack the Bisquick or just add a few tablespoons at a time until its no longer sticky, I made these last night and probably ended up using at least 2.5 cups, and they were amazing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Found this recipe on Pinterest..must say they were delicious! We had them tonight and will definitely be having again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I made these tonight and every one was gone off the platter. My husband said "if you ever make biscuits again, only make these".. Before I dumped the dough onto a powdered countertop, I did sprinkle some more Bisquick over it.. didn't have any issues with it being sticky at all. Thanks again ~ Pam

    ReplyDelete
  78. BEST BISCUITS EVER!!! My husband agrees and he's SOUTHERN! I will love you forever and ever and ever for this recipe.
    Only change I made was to brush the tops with a bit of melted butter while they were cooling.
    I <3 U

    ReplyDelete
  79. Thanks for the great recipe. I like it best when using reduced fat sour cream, Sprite Zero, Bisquick, and salted butter. See you on Pinterest. Linda

    ReplyDelete
  80. has anyone tried using Krusteaz instead of Bisquick?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Found on pinterest, and had to make my own bisqwik (which was fun & easy) and then used my own mix for these biscuits. Fantastic! The dough is very loose and sticky...just pat it into about 1/4 cup more mix on your cutting board. Turn it a few times and then pat. I was able to make 8 and filled the small areas of the pan with dough bits.

    There are none left...the family Loves these!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Made these tonight and, like you said, super easy and easily the best biscuits I've ever had or made! Thank you for sharing!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Melted butter in the dough, or brushed on top? Before or after baking?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Sophie's Mom - put the melted butter in the pan before you put the cut biscuits down

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh my goodness!!! Just made these and they are sooo delectable!!! Used sprite instead of 7-up. Spooned dollops onto pam instead of cutting them! The children looooved them as asked me to please make them again! Thanks pinterest:))

    ReplyDelete
  86. I don't have a square stone pan (although I will be ordering one at the PC party I'm going to in a few weeks) -- has anyone used a glass pan?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Best and easiest recipe ever. 20 minutes from start to finish. Used the Pioneer flour in place of Bisquick (all I had),plopped everything in my kitchenaid mixer except the butter and turned out as pictured and as good as all of the comments stated. This will definitely be a recipe to use over and over...Love it and thank you...

    ReplyDelete
  88. YUMMY! We doubled the recipe and actually my daughter mistakenly added the butter to the dough.. so it was very sticky. So I added and mixed in just enough additional Bisquick to make it pliable for cutting out- still put melted butter in bottom of pan and it Turned out Reallyyyyy good! Bake about 5-10 more mins. then called for however. and the double batch made 30 regular sized biscuits. super easy super good!

  90. Sorry, published note before I was done, oops.

    Just made this recipe - loved it! Mine tasted similar to KFC biscuits, my hubby couldn't be happier. :)

    I used a glass pan and they turned out just fine. Used Sprite too...

    ReplyDelete
  91. Although I bake often, I have never successfully mastered the art of biscuit making...until now. This is the recipe I have been searching for! Even my husband (who has witnessed my epic biscuit failures more times than I can count) was impressed they actually turned out and were fantastic. Thank you SO much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  92. So, I started making these...got the sour cream and bisquick together and realized no sprite. I substituted beer and they were FANTASTIC! I thought the dough might be too soft by it wasn't! New family favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh my these are wonderful!! I'm making them for a fish fry, so tonight was just a trial run at it.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Any suggestions for substituting the sour cream? My kids have dairy allergies, but these look so good! I know how to substitute butter. I haven't needed to find a substitute for sour cream yet...

  96. Mine were really sticky and didn't rise as much as those in the picture. I used reduced fat bisquick...does that make a difference?

    ReplyDelete
  97. I tried these yesterday morning... They were good just not fluffy.. Mine were a bit flat.. And as others stated the dough was sticky.... I'm going to play around with it and test out the others suggestions! :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love this idea but because of diet restrictions I am going to lighten it up and use Diet 7-up, light bisquick, ff sour cream and spray butter....can't wait to try

    ReplyDelete
  99. Could you use any light colored soda? Like gingerale?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Starla - I would think so - ginger ale sounds good.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm excited to try these but I was wonderinG if I could make the dough tonight..a Thursday night. Put them in the fridge unbaked and then bake them early Saturday morning for a brunch. I just dont have time Friday or Saturday. I was just worried because if the 7up in the mix too long would mess up the consistency. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Mine look nothing like yours but they sure were good. I am taking them to work tomorrow and had to test taste on to make sure they were good. I am fighting the urge to have another one. Thanks so much!

  107. I made these biscuits a couple of weeks ago for the first time. WONDERFUL! Thanks so much for giving me a biscuit recipe for my picky about his biscuits husband! He LOVES them! I made them tonight, but with a twist - I added 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese just before patting them out, baked them, then brushed 1/4 cup melted butter mixed with 1/4 tsp of garlic powder onto them while warm. Y.U.M.M.Y!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Tricia - great idea! Going to have to try the cheesy version

    ReplyDelete
  109. These were very good, definitely a keeper, albeit a caloric keeper.

    Just out of curiosity, a few days later, we made a batch using a store-bought instant biscuit mix that called for water, only. We just added 7-up in place of the water, and added melted butter to the pan -- so we skipped the sour cream. The instant mix with 7-up cooked up just as nice as the Bisquick with sour cream and 7-up. Next we're going to try using 7-up in pancakes and waffles, too.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love Popeye's biscuits. I think I'll try this and lighten up the ingredients a bit. : )

    ReplyDelete
  111. Help! I tried these tonight. They tasted great, but they didn't look very good. They didn't rise very much. Do you spoon the batter into the pan? Mine was so liquidy that I had to; I wasn't able to use a biscuit cutter. I don't know if this matters but I did cut the recipe in half.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hayes - try adding a little more Bisquick to the batter - add a couple of tablespoons to the batter until you get the consistency you want. You can also make drop biscuits.

  112. @m&m looking for a dairy free alternative to sour cream -

    Try putting silken tofu in the whiz until smooth and then add a few drops of lemon juice to taste.

    OR

    Use dairy free yoghurt and hang it overnight in a muslin bag/cloth or cheese hanger so it's the consistency of sour cream - then add a little lemon juice to taste.

    Good luck :-)

    ReplyDelete
  113. Help!! The dough wasn't just soft, it was too wet to handle!! I had to add LOTS of bisquick to make them even a litle drier, probably another 1/2 cup!! Did I do something wrong?!

    ReplyDelete

  115. I made these today and OH MY GOODNESS. Delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I too had a terrible time with the dough being way to sticky...just kept adding Bisquick until I could handle them. They came out a little flat but not too bad...will have to try again. They tasted so good though...especially with honey! :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Total disaster when I made these. They looked like flat cookies. Was something left out of this recipe, like baking soda or baking powder?

    ReplyDelete
  118. I have never been able to make a good biscuit until now. Thank u soooo much for this recipe. Like some of the others I found it to be a very sticky dough but simply by adding more Bisquick, it did the trick. We had out of town company and I don't usually make something I haven't tried before...but these were a huge hit with everyone. These are my "go to" biscuits now...won't make any other kind. Thanks again. Now I have to try some more of ur recipes.

    ReplyDelete
  119. This continues to be my best ever biscuit effort! Recently we took a long vacation, and I decided before going to freeze the opened sour cream. What did I have to lose? This morning before making these biscuits I checked out the sour cream. It looked rather grainy and soupy, but I used it anyway. Yah! What a great batch of super, light biscuits! This recipe works under all conditions!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I made these tonight. Mine turned out rather flat but they taste good. I do not have the same size pan you use..only a 9x13 baking pan...I used it anyway. i found that if you put them in without them touching each other they don't rise as well and are harder...definitely going to try making them a couple of times to see if I can't perfect them.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I tried this with gluten-free Bisquick, and I was pretty impressed. It took quite a bit longer for the biscuits to cook; don't know if it was because it was gluten-free or because of the glass pan I used. I also used a little room temp butter in the batter to keep the dough from falling apart so much. Otherwise, great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  122. These sound lovely - will try this recipe for sure, I always have some bisquick handy for scones and pizza bases.

  128. I have wanted a good recipe FOREVER! I have used Bisquick but never this way. I found you on Pinterest.

    I just took these out of the oven and they are superb! Finally *sigh*

    They are very very soft. Instead of cutting them out.. I pat it into a long rectangle and cut them into squares -then plop them in the pan. They were wondeful :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. These are DELICIOUS!!! So moist and buttery!!! I will be making these over and over again...thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I tried these and they tasted good, but came out really dark (almost burnt). Have you had success with them at 350? or is it necessary to cook them at 450 in order to cook them all-the-way through? If it is 450, what am I doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete

    Note: as I didn'have 7up at home I used Coke instead. Delicious!

  136. I made these today for the kids with their lunch. Actually, my son made them. The dough was super sticky, and when I plopped them on the counter to pat out, it was super soft, there was no way I could cut them! So I just used a spoon and scooped them into the pan in blobs. :) They were delicious! Next time I'll add more baking mix as I see you've suggested above in the comments so I can have a thicker dough. All the kiddos loved them and so did I!

  140. Just made these with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and they taste great! Since this recipe used the rest of my bisquick healthy heart mix, I used flour to take the moisture out of the dough and although it took a lot of flour they tasted delicious. I also baked mine as miniature biscuits, so cute and yummy! Thanks for this recipe!

  141. thank you thank you thank you....and thank you. LOL these are great! I have made them several times now and they are my go-to biscuits. I will never make those canned biscuits again!!! We always have 7-up in the house. and i never go w/o sour cream either.

  142. These are delish! The lightest and fluffiest biscuits I ever made. Thanks for a great recipe.

  143. Hi, I tried to make these tonight, and they are very tasty, but they were FLAT. Like discs. The only thing I varied was to use gluten free Bisquick, but I see that another reader used it with fine results. Did I overmix? Am I supposed to make the biscuit recipe on the Bisquick box and then also add the sour cream, 7up? It looks like everyone else knew what to do!

  144. I made these tonight and they were delicious. I made two pans because they wouldn't fit in one pan. The second pan sat out for about 20 minutes and they rose much better than the other batch that went straight in the oven. But they were all good!

  145. Parkerplanet - you could have over mixed or you could have rolled the dough too thin. You can just press the dough in a 9x9-inch pan and cut the dough into 9 biscuits directly in the pan.

  146. These are absolutely amazing!! I used flour instead of bisquick, and it needs way more flour than called for they turned out perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  147. OK...I've made these 3 times...the first time they were perfect! But, the last 2 times, they didn't rise up! They were flat! What am I doing wrong?!?!

  148. Have you ever tried making dumplings with this recipe?Just wondering if it would work.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Yummy biscuits, do definitely intend to make these again, if I can get the dough to be less of a mess. My dough was super sticky, and it was a sticky mess to incorporate more Bisquick. Maybe it is the way I measured the Bisquick. Do you measure Bisquick by spooning into the cup and leveling or just scooping the Bisquick with the measuring cup and leveling?

  150. I just made these tonight with Fage 2% Greek yogurt and Blue Sky lemon lime soda and they turned out beautifully. I did make the mistake of cooking them in a foil pan and the bottoms were a bit underdone so a popped them on a cookie sheet and put them back in the oven for a few extra minutes to brown the bottoms.

  151. For anyone having problems with the dough being too sticky to pat out and cut, I had the same problem the first time I made them! But I was afraid to keep adding Bisquick because I didn't want them to be too dry, so I just make drop biscuits. They were fine, but the next time I made them I packed my biscuit mix into my measuring cup much more than I did the first time, I probably ended up using at least 1/2 cup more of mix. And they turned out perfect!! I was able to pat them out and cut them easily! Just a heads up!

  152. I made these using Pioneer and not Bisquick. They were the absolute best!!! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  153. The dough smelled delicious. However, they were flat as pancakes and tasted sour. I used light sour cream and diet 7up. What went wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  154. JohnandCassie - I recommend using the full fat sour cream and full flavor 7up. I bet using the low fat and diet versions caused the issue.

    ReplyDelete
  155. this is the 3rd time making them, 5th if you count that 2 times were a double batch. and every time it makes the SAME amt of biscuts......i really love that!! for the size cutter i use i get 12 biscuts for a single batch, 24 for a double, thats with them touching. so good im taking them to Thanksgiving!!. FYI ive only used Walmart Brand Sprite and its been yummy every time.

  156. These biscuits, brushed with butter in the last 2 min of baking... With homemade sausage gravy... OMG!!!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I used an ice cream scoop and had 9 perfect biscuits. The dough worked out exactly.....these are delicious!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  158. do I have to knead this dough or just as it is mixed, shape it and then cut them out? I can't make biscuits from scratch or mix to save my life, I do have some Pioneer mix though and am anxious to try this

    ReplyDelete
  159. I MADE THESE AND THEY ARE WONDERFUL...EVERYONE THAT TRIED THEM LOVED THEM...I WILL MAKE THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN......A KEEPER...HUGS

  160. I found these on Pinterest and OMG they are perfection!! Thank you so much!!

  161. I never saw the question about freezing answered.

    and I'm excited to try these but also anxious it would be my luck that the biscuits would be flat.

    Anyone thatmade hem and the were flatand then made them again withg no probles do you know what you went wrong?

    I have a stand mixer and wil be using greek yogurt and a gass dish, I dont have stoneware.

  162. Made these tonight, used a 9x13 and 1 1/2'd the recipe. Perfect! Delicious! Can't wait to make again. I followed the Bisquick directions as far as how thick to pay the dough, and used a small drinking glass to cut them out (about 2 1/2" diameter). Made 12 biscuits. I think the key is not over mixing the 7up. I barely incorporated the liquid, batter is lumpy and sticky. When I had a little edge after cutting, I just pressed it back into the dough. Thanks for the recipe!

  163. Quick question about the 7UP biscuit recipe you have: If I make my own Bisquick, I see it says to add 1/2 cup shortening to it. I will do that, but then do I also need to add the 1/4 melted butter to the biscuit recipe? I assume that I do, but I want to be sure. Also, I notice that I'm supposed to add 2 1/2 cups of flour to the Bisquick mixture, but the recipe for the biscuits says to use only 2 cups of Bisquick. I just want to make sure I'm reading that/understanding it correctly . . . so basically, I'd have about 1/2 cup of my "homemade Bisquick" mix left over once I finish making the 7UP biscuits.

    Now that I type all that, it seems like it'd be a WHOLE lot easier to just buy some already-made Bisquick!!! LOL. Thanks for an amazing-looking recipe! Can't wait to try it!

  164. Carrie - Yes - you will have a little leftover homemade Bisquick since the recipe calls for 2 cups of Bisquick. You many need a little more to work into the dough to make it less sticky. SO your homemade recipe might be perfect. Hope you enjoy them!

  165. I made these for dinner today, (Easter 2013). They were WONDERFUL!!! I only had Mountain Dew, and they had to sit in a warm oven until ribeye roast was done, which made them OH SO CRISPY on the bottom. Pure heaven! Simple and delicious. Does it really get any better?
    Thank you for sharing!

  166. These biscuits are just excellent! Buttery, tender, delicate texture, yet crispy on the ends. I used diet ginger ale and my own homemade Bisquick. I used lots of extra flour to pat them out and a dough spatula to lift them off the counter and into the prepared pan. No problem with stickiness then! Great recipe! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  167. I just made these and used only 1/4 cup 7Up. I still needed quite a bit of Bisquick on the board to knead the dough. They turned out absolutely scrumptious, melt-in-the-mouth delicate, and fluffy as clouds. These are good enough for the most important holiday meals! I've been making biscuits for 40 years, and these are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  168. I made these and they are great. the only difference i did was i mixed the 7 up in the bisquick/sour cream mix and then instead of patting the dough out on a floured surface i just put it straight into the buttered 9x9 dish, patted it out and cut it in squares. It was quick and less area to clean up afterwards!

  169. These biscuits were wonderful! I used diet 7up and light sour cream, it's what I had on hand, and everyone loved them.

  170. These are SOOOO delicious. Thank you so much for sharing such a great recipe.

  171. These tasted fantastic and so simple. ( But mine looked nothing like yours and I only got 5 biscuits ). I think the lack of height was probably due to the altitude where I live, but the taste was just like KFC's. Still fluffy and light inside. Will definitely make again and again. That buttery bottom is heavenly. Wish I could get mine to look as pretty.

  172. Any advice on how to make these when camping, with the only heat source being a campfire?

    1. You can use a cast iron pan, covering the top with aluminum foil to keep them from burning.

  173. I was too lazy to roll these out. So I made them into drop biscuits. I dipped my fingers into the melted butter before pulling off chunks of dough. No sticking! Then for good measure I rolled the dough in the butter :) Turned out awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  174. It's delicious, but even better with Pioneer Baking mix!

    ReplyDelete
  175. I decided to try making these biscuits with the gluten free bisquick. We made two batches, one batch was plain and the other was crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar. Both of the batches came out wonderful.
