Killer 7-Up Biscuits (4 ingredients!)

These really are KILLER biscuits. 
(It's also one of the easy recipes included in my upcoming cookbook=)

With only 4 simple ingredients, they go together quickly, and only take about 15 minutes to bake.

They are light and fluffy and the crusty buttery crust makes them 'over the top'.

In this photo, one biscuit is right side up, and the other is upside down so you can get a glimpse of that yummy buttery crust. It's difficult to see how nicely the biscuit has absorbed the butter in the one on top, but trust me, it has plenty of butter too. 
Though I reviewed at least 4 similar recipes at blogs, I have to admit I got the idea for the name of these biscuits from sweet Tonya at 4 little Fergusons. I know this recipe is all over the internet, in different forms and fashions for making them. I made up my own measurements and the process for shaping them into biscuits.

So...this is my version and we love it. When I helped in a college kitchen this past summer, cooking for about 100 teens, this recipe was made 3 times in
2 weeks. 

Great to serve with breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Would be awesome with beef stew over them or just on the side. 



6 Tb. butter, sliced
2-1/2 c. Bisquick
(I use Heart Smart)
1/2 c. sour cream
(or Greek yogurt)
1/2 c. (diet) 7-up, room temperature

Preheat oven to 450*. As you are preheating, melt the butter in a 9" X 9" baking dish in the oven, watching closely so it simply melts, and not browns. (It could burn when baking the biscuits if overdone).

In large bowl, place Bisquick, sour cream and 7-Up.  Mix with fork until blended. 

Flour your hands. Make 9 biscuits, placing on top of butter, and patting down some, re-flouring your hands as you form each one. (It isn't necessary that the pan be totally filled.) 

Bake about 12 - 15 minutes or until top is browned.

No need to serve with butter as the crust will take care of that part for you. 

I remove one at a time from the pan when serving. 

Reheat in oven or toaster oven...if you have any left.  We even enjoy them cold.
