Hi there. First of all, I wanted to say that my heart and thoughts are with the victims, families, and friends of Newton, CT. Like most of you, I’ve had those children and their families on my mind all weekend. I’ve been loving on my kids extra hard and hope that we are all doing the same. Let’s all continue praying, thinking good thoughts, and just generally loving one another during this sad time.
It feels wrong to launch into one of my usual goofy stories about nothing, so today I will leave with you a recipe. We could all use something warm, delicious, and simple in our bellies right about now.
These biscuits are quick to whip up, extremely fluffy, and the bottom crunch makes you think they were fried in butter. Bonus: You only need four ingredients! Give them a try the next time you’re in the mood for a homemade biscuit. Slather ’em with butter, honey, or jam and enjoy.
7 Up Biscuits
These biscuits only need 4 ingredients and are super quick and easy to whip up!
2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1/2 cup 7 Up or Sprite
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
Place the butter in a 9x9 baking dish and turn the oven to 425 degrees. Let the butter melt while the oven preheats.
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the baking mix, soda, and sour cream until just combined.
Generously sprinkle the counter top with baking mix and dump the dough out onto it. Sprinkle more baking mix on top of the dough as needed and pat the dough out to about 1/2 an inch thick.
Remove the pan with the melted butter from the oven and give it a swirl to evenly coat the dish. Cut the biscuits out and place them in the pan of butter.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
