7-Up Biscuits

7-Up Biscuits

2 cups Bisquick Original baking mix**, plus a little plain flour for dusting
1/3 to 1/2 cup 7-Up lemon-lime soda or club soda
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425-F.
In a bowl mix sour cream and 7-Up soda. Stir in Bisquick. Dough will be very soft. It’s best to have the dough as wet as you can work it for tender, tall biscuits.
Knead and fold dough a few times to mix, using a little dusting of plain flour if necessary. A bench scraper will also help.
Pat dough out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut biscuits using a round biscuit cutter.
Pat out dough scraps to about 1/2 inch thick and continue to cut out biscuits.
Brush biscuits with melted butter, top, sides and bottom.
Place biscuits on baking sheet. With sides touching for tall, soft biscuits. Or not touching for crisper biscuits.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until golden brown and when center temperature reaches 190-F, they’re done.
