7-Up Biscuits

7Up Biscuits
I love spending some quality time with Pinterest. (Also known as shamelessly ignoring the laundry and piles of dirty dishes, just to gawk at perfect pictures of genius ideas.) One of my boards is dedicated to food that has caught my eye, and when I came across a biscuit recipe that used 7-up, I knew I was making it a.s.a.p.

I wasn’t sure what would make these biscuits so different than all the other recipes I’ve tried, but I just had a gut feeling that this was “the one”. I was right! These biscuits are slap-you-silly good. They’re fluffy and tender, and just have a plain awesome texture in all the right places. They don’t even need butter.

Well, that’s not completely true….every biscuit needs a little butter….and honey. I adapted the original recipe a bit so they are completely from scratch. (I can’t bring myself to buy Bisquick when it’s so easy to make yourself, and cheaper too!)

7-Up Biscuits

7up Biscuits

Yield: 9 biscuits  Printable Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup vegetable shortening (I use non-hydrogenated coconut oil shortening)

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup 7-up (room temperature, and the real stuff! Not Diet)

1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 450. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, then cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Cut the sour cream into biscuit mix, then add the 7-Up. This 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.

Recipe Notes: The original recipe calls for 2 cups of Bisquick, so if you want to use Bisquick just omit the flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening.

I also found this recipe via Pinterest, and have had fabulous results making them with Sprite (We don't drink soda, and can only find 2L 7-ups). Best biscuits ever, hands down!

Yes! I saw these on Pinterest awhile back and made them too. They really are some of the best biscuits I've ever had and so easy!

Thank you for this recipe I really wanted to try it but hated the fact that they used bisquick...I will be making these today.

They turned out amazing! But I added way more flour than called for it was really sticky!

I didn't have 7-Up (or Sprite) on hand tonight, but I did have club soda! They were amazing...and without added sugar. Thanks for the recipe!
