Easy 7-up Biscuits from Scratch

What?  Yep, that’s right, 7up biscuits.  Some places on the internet 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 four ingredients – so 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!

What is Bisquick?

Bisquick is a pre-made baking mix sold by Betty Crocker. It is made with flour, shortening, salt, sugar, and baking powder.

If you don’t have access to a box of Bisquick baking mix, you can make a quick homemade Bisquick mix.

In a food processor pulse 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt, and 2 1⁄2 tablespoons Crisco shortening. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a pastry cutter to cut the shortening into the flour mixture.

How to Make 7up Biscuits

These tender biscuits are super easy to make with only four simple ingredients. Start with putting some melted butter in a baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, mix together Bisquick, sour cream, and 7up lemon-lime soda just until a soft dough forms. The dough will be somewhat soft and sticky. 

Sprinkle some extra Bisquick on the counter and place the biscuit dough on top of it. Gently knead and fold the dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat the dough into a 9-inch square and cut out the biscuits with a 3-inch round biscuit cutter or cookie cutter. Place the biscuits on top of the melted butter in the baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • If you don’t have 7up in the fridge, you can substitute Sprite or Ginger Ale.
  • The dough will be very soft. Try to avoid overmixing or adding too much extra Bisquick to the dough. The soft dough is what gives these biscuits their light and fluffy texture.
  • Can I Freeze Biscuits? Yes! To freeze the baked biscuits, cool them to room temperature and place them in a single layer in an airtight container or freezer bag. Store the biscuits in the freezer for up to 3 months. 
    • To freeze unbaked biscuits, Freeze them in a single layer so you can easily remove a few at a time. Frozen biscuit dough can be baked straight out of the refrigerator at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature.

What to Serve with Homemade Biscuits

These biscuits are on repeat at our house. We absolutely LOVE them. This recipe makes 9 biscuits. Perfect for a dinner side and breakfast. I love to stuff the leftover biscuits with egg, cheese, and bacon – YUM. The biscuits are equally delicious slathered with sausage gravy, honey butter, or your favorite jam. Give these a try the next time you need an easy bread recipe. You won’t be disappointed!

Easy Cruffins Recipe – buttery flaky pastries that are perfect for breakfast, brunch, and dessert. Effortless to make and they…


  1. I made them with gluten free baking mix and Sprite Zero. I melted butter in the dish and dropped the dough in by spoonfuls and brushed more butter on top. Absolutely perfect!

  2. Wow made these this morning fiancé taste like Grandmas and that’s a compliment served with homemade apple butter, delicious thanks so much for sharing

      1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  3. Never made biscuits before -these are awesome. The left overs from the first morning went for biscuits and gravy the next morning. They hold their own to the sausage gravy. Thank you for this!!

  4. First attempt and these turned out almost as good as my favorite restaurant biscuit – big, fluffy, tender and buttery. YUM!
    I’m sure as I continue to make these, I will like them better than those restaurant ones.

  5. I am doing something wrong. I made these twice and each time they stick so bad to the counter. I think I have plenty of bisquick on the counter and on top of the biscuits. Do you have any ideas?

  6. Has anyone made these with Sprite instead of 7-Up? I have Sprite on hand and hoping that will work. Will be making these for Easter so I don’t want to ruin the recipe. Thanks!

  7. These are the easiest biscuits to make and taste oh so delicious!! I didn’t have any Bisquick so I found a copycat recipe for that and it was really good!

  8. Almost midnight and I'm chomping down on some of these biscuits. Thought I'd try a batch tonight & see how they turn out. I'd probably put a little dash of butter on top for the next batch just to get a more golden color. They are delicious. The green bean recipe is all made up & ready to pop in the oven tomorrow afternoon. I know I'll love them and it's such an easy dish to make. Thank you for the delicious recipes.

  9. I've made these biscuits many times and they are always delicious. I follow the directions exactly as written. No need to change a thing. They are perfect!

    1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  10. Been making theses for years. Always turn out great. Earlier this summer I had them started & discovered my can of 7up that I keep stashed in the back of the fridge for biscuits had disappeared. My friend was over & she had a bottle of Jarritos Mineragua, a Mexican mineral water. It was the only thing carbonated in the house that wasn’t colored, I don’t want orange soda or root beer biscuits. Used it, with a pinch of sugar & they were fantastic. It was super carbonated & they were the best biscuits I’ve made. My friend raved about them, & is now known to show up for Sunday dinner with a bottle of Mineragua asking for biscuits. I’ve done it several times since & decided a teaspoon of sugar is just right with the mineral water.

  11. Tasted great! Didn't have 7-up so I used Mountain Dew. Didn't rise as much as I would have liked. Made then again and let them set out for about 15 minutes before putting in the oven and they did rise more.

  12. As you can probably tell by the title of my blog, I'm from Louisiana. lol. Like my Mawmaw, I didn't use a biscuit cutter. I just threw some extra biscuit on my hands, shaped and slapped those babies on a pan. Lightest biscuits I have ever had. I ate them hot with butter and Steen's syrup. Lord Almighty!! Merci! mawmawwasright.blogspot.com

  13. Thanks for your help, and for a great site full of wonderful recipes! I love trying them all, and I love reading your travel blogs as well.

  14. Hi Steph!
    Love the site and all of your great recipes! I have a question about these delicious biscuits. How thick do you pat them out before cutting? Mine turned out a little flat, and I think I got more biscuits than I should have. So I'm thinking maybe I patted them out a little too thin. Thanks for any help you can give!

    1. They don't rise up a lot so you want to make the dough fairly thick. I pat the dough into 9 inch square and cut them out

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

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

  19. 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 9×9 dish, patted it out and cut it in squares. It was quick and less area to clean up afterwards!

  20. 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!

  21. 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

  22. 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!

  23. 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!

  24. 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!

  25. Made these tonight, used a 9×13 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!

  26. 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.


  28. 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

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

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

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

  33. 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!

  34. 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.

  35. 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?

  36. 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?!?!

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

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

  39. 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!

  40. 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!

  41. 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.

  42. 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!

  43. We don't have Bisquick in Chile…..I can susbstitute it with regular ingredients…..but what is shortening???
    Help please, receipe looks so yummy

  44. 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!

  45. Has anyone made the dough a day early to bake the next day? I want to try these tomorrow, but have to have everything oven-ready today.

  46. Has anyone made the dough a day early to bake the next day? I want to try these tomorrow, but have to have everything oven-ready today.

  47. 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?

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

  49. 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 🙂

  50. Yum! can't wait to try these, I'm terrible at biscuit-making!! I'll have to try your recipe for bisquick too 🙂

  51. I know that you have gotten ton of comment on how great these biscuits are so I'm just going to add another one!! THESE ARE THE BEST BISCUITS I HAVE EVER MADE!!!! I can't wait to make another batch and serve them with sausage gravy!

  52. I used this recipe and put them in a muffin tin. They came out great!!! I need to post a picture of them!

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

  54. 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!

  55. 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 9×13 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.

  56. 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!

  57. 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.

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

  59. 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! 🙂

  60. 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?!

  61. @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.


    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 🙂

  62. 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.

    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.

  63. 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.

  64. 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!

  65. 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!

  66. 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!

  67. 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

  68. 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! 🙂

  69. 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?

  70. 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…

  71. 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…

  72. 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.

  73. 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!

  74. 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…

  75. 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!

  76. 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…

  77. 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?

  78. 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:))

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

  80. 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!!!

  81. 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

  82. 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

  83. 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

  84. Found this recipe on Pinterest..must say they were delicious! We had them tonight and will definitely be having again. 🙂

  85. 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!!!

  86. 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.

  87. 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..

    1. Hayley maybe try adding a little more Bisquick to the mix to make it less sticky. Also make sure you use a dry measuring cup to measure the sour cream and level it off. Make sure you use a liquid measuring cup to measure the 7-up and look at it at eye level to be sure it's the right amount. As far as cleanup if you wipe down your counter and then place wax paper down (wetting the counter helps hold the wax paper in place), you can put your bisquick on the wax paper and make your biscuits. When finished just toss the wax paper in the trash. This makes clean up so much easier. Hope this helps.

  88. I get about 9 – 10 biscuits when I make them. I pat the dough out into about a 9×9 square and then cut them out

    1. They don't rise up a lot so you want to make the dough fairly thick. I pat the dough into 9 inch square and cut them out

  89. 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 9×13 pan, and make 12 evenly sized biscuits. I made a double batch today for Thanksgiving tomorrow! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  90. 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?

  91. 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!

  92. 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.

  93. 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!

  94. 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?

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

  96. OH MY Gosh! I made these tonight and these truly are the best biscuits ever!! May I show them on my blog and credit you and link you?

  97. 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!

  98. 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!
    Gonna make more tomorrow and try cutting them out for smaller, but oh my these are good!

  99. Lindsay – I put a little more bisquick on the counter and a little more on top of the dough before I cut them.

  100. 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!

  101. 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

  102. 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

  103. 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 🙂

  104. 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.

  105. 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.

  106. 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!

  107. 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!

  108. 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!

  109. 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!

  110. 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!

  111. 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!

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

      1. I would say NO. Plain Greek yogurt is a substitute for sour cream. I have not tried it in this recipe, so I don’t know if it would work.

  113. 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

  114. @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.

  115. 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?

  116. 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.

  117. 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! 🙂

  118. 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.

    1. My Mom has made this recipe for many years but used club soda instead of 7up, her biscuits are always delicious. We always called them Hardee’s biscuits, they taste just like the ones from they serve at the fast food restaurant.
      I’m going to give your recipe a try!

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

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

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

  122. 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!

      1. Delicious! But I found dough was so soft and sticky I did not attempt to use biscuit cutter. I just turned dough into pan that had the melted butter and baked. I let biscuits cool at least 10 mins then cut them into squares.

  123. 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?

  124. 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!

  125. 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!

  126. 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.

  127. 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.

    1. jackie , I made those 7 -up biscuits and they were everything and then some !! great recipe thanks.
