Ah, biscuits!

I've been very neglectful about blogging the past few weeks, but not about eating!  Now I must share this wonderful biscuit recipe from  They are very simple to make and have a great texture and taste.  I'd rate them right up there with KFC biscuits--and well above any I've tried to make over the years.

2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-Up
1/4 cup melted butter

While oven is preheating to 450 degrees, melt the butter in a 9-inch square pan.
Meanwhile, in a bowl cut sour cream into the Bisquick.  Add the 7-Up.  It's a very soft wet dough.  Sprinkle additional Bisquick on the counter and pat dough out.  It's very sticky, so I sprinkled more Bisquick on top.  The recipe said to cut the biscuits with a round cutter, but they squared up as they baked, so I thought it was easier and less wasteful to just cut the square of dough into nine smaller squares with a knife.  Put them into the pan on top of the melted butter.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.
