7-UP Biscuits

These will be the best biscuits you will ever make.   I wanted to try this recipe because it sounded weird.  7-UP in biscuits?  But they are so good!  They are soft and buttery and they didn’t even make it to the table before they were gone!  

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Things that I changed:  My fist batch was really sticky.  I couldn’t even get it off of my fingers.  If this happens, just add some extra biscuit mix to it, but not to much because you don’t want them to taste dry.  The dough is supposed to be soft.  
Things that I would do differently next time:  Nothing
Will I make this again?  Yes!
Recipe From:  Plain Chicken


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. We literally just made these and they were the best bscuits we’ve ever had! Too good and too easy! Right up my ally haha 🙂

  2. I make these a LOT!!
    BUT…I don’t roll/cut…I just melt the butter in the pan, and spread the dough over it, and bake according to the directions!! just as yummy and even easier!! 🙂

  3. I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. Wow, amazing! This is now my go to recipe for biscuits. I made them last night, but I had no 7up on hand. I used Mountain Dew instead and they came out just fine. I’m thinking any light colored soda will do. With my husband loving Mt. Dew, it’s always on hand.

    these biscuits sound delicious and easy to make, could I use gingerale instead of 7-up?

  5. I love these. I make them all the time, but add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the bisquick. We like them just a touch sweeter.

    I do so apologize but you suggested that I use 1/4 cup of butter. I don’t know where to use the butter for the 7 up soda biscuits made from bisquick. Please email me asap. Thank You So Much !!!

  8. These are so crispy outside and so soft inside when made in a cast iron skillet. They could possibly be the best biscuits EVER!!!!!

  10. Mine turned out about 1/2-1″ high, tasty, but, very dense, not soft and fluffy. What did I do wrong?

    • Make sure you work the dough as little as possible. Do not knead it, but mix it with a fork until it just comes together. It will be very loose, but just push it together and plop it into a buttered baking dish. Pat the top smooth and score it with a pizza roller if desired. You can also bake it like that as one giant biscuit and slice after baking. Another thing I do is to put about a teaspoon of the melted butter in each well of a muffin tin and bake them like that. Very crispy outside and soft and fluffy inside.

  11. I’ve made these for years. The only thing that’s different, the original recipe called for club soda at room temperature. For those watching their sugar intake, club soda is much better. Any fizzy soda will work if you want to switch out the type you use.

  12. How do I print the 7-UP Biscuits so that I can have it on hand.

  13. These biscuits are awesome. My mom always rolled out her dough or patted it to make a large piece. She would melt some butter to spread on the top of the dough, and would fold it over, press lightly, and cut out the biscuits. The end result was easy pop-open biscuits ……no cutting required. Also, there are many ways you can alter the recipe to go with other meals, too.

    Instead of using sour cream use cottage cheese. Blend it until it is smooth. You can add some dill seed or celery seed to it, too. The variations are endless.
