How To Make This 7UP Biscuits Recipe
OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS
You can double this flaky biscuits recipe easily. You can cut extra biscuits or just use a 9×13-inch pan and place the dough directly inside; no cutting required!
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Spray the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish with cooking spray.
STEP TWO: Add flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar to a large bowl. Whisk together.
If your flour is lumpy, run it through a sifter or whisk it well before adding any liquids.
STEP THREE: Cut up your butter. Place the butter in with the flour mixture and toss to coat them in flour.
Use a fork or a pastry cutter to chop the butter pieces until they are about the size of peas.
STEP FOUR: Place the flour mixture in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to cool the butter back down. This is the secret to making your biscuits nice and flaky.
STEP FIVE: Add 7UP to the biscuit mix and stir together until it forms a dough ball.
If you’re adding sour cream, mix the sour cream and 7UP together and add them all at once.
STEP SIX: When the biscuit dough is mixed, pour it out onto a lightly floured cutting board or counter.
Use a rolling pin to lightly roll the dough into a 9×9 square. It should be about ¾ inch thick.
STEP SEVEN: Use a biscuit cutter, pizza cutter, or knife to cut the square into 9 biscuits. Make a tic-tac-toe pattern!
If you don’t want to cut the biscuits, you can bake this as one solid loaf and just cut it apart after. Just use a slightly smaller pan – 8×8 will work great.
STEP EIGHT: Place cut biscuits in a single layer in the prepared pan, with the edges of each biscuit touching.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rack to cool a bit before eating.
Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your biscuits as the suggested baking time approaches.
How To Serve
With these being such a great side dish, you’ll want something just as yummy to pair them with!
IN THE FRIDGE: After allowing the biscuits to cool, place the biscuits in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
IN THE FREEZER: If you want to freeze them for later, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or foil to prevent loss of flavor or drying out.
They will last up to two to three months.
Slather these easy 7UP biscuits with honey or jam, or dip them in gravy or stew! They’re buttery, flaky, moist, with a fluffy texture – everything you’re looking for in a biscuit, but with way less hassle with their minimal prep time and simple ingredients.
