Seven Up Biscuits (7-Up biscuits)

These were the lightest and fluffiest biscuits I've made in a long time.
I had to create my own 7-Up because we didn't have any. I used a cup of club soda, 2 tbsp of sugar, and 1 tsp each of lemon and lime juice. The results were spot on!
I sure hope you try this biscuit recipe, if you like soft, tall biscuits.
I tried this recipe from Facebook and it was wonderful - so I thought I would let everyone know how good it was, thinking there surely had to be a copy of this recipe on Just A Pinch. After several searches, I was unable to find one, so I'm posting it.

Serves:

2 dozen biscuits

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

4 c
bisquick mix
1 c
sour cream
1 c
club soda
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
each lemon and lime juice
*or* for the above, just substitute 1 cup 7-up soda
1/2 c
butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425°.
Stir together the club soda, sugar, and lemon and lime juices until blended (or just measure 1 cup 7-Up).
2
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the Bisquick, sour cream, and club soda mixture (or 7-Up). Dough will be very soft, that's OK. Turn out onto a flat surface which has been liberally sprinkled with about 1/3 cup more Bisquick.
3
Knead dough lightly just a few times until extra Bisquick is worked in. Work in more Bisquick if necessary, but don't let the dough get stiff or dry. I use a pastry cloth for this step, but whatever surface you normally use for biscuits should work fine. Pat out (don't roll) to about 1/2" thick.
4
Place the melted butter in the bottom of a 9x13" cake pan.
Using a 2 1/2-inch cutter, cut biscuits and place them in the melted butter. Keep them close together, sides touching. It will be a tight fit.
You will have to lightly re-knead your scraps after cutting until all the dough is used up.
5
Bake the biscuits about 14-17 minutes, until nicely browned. Watch them carefully so the tops don't get too brown. When done, use a fork to separate the biscuits from each other.
*Note* I made only a half-recipe the first time, and it worked great, too. I got 1 dozen 2 1/2-inch biscuits.
