How to Make Quick and Easy Biscuits

I'm not a biscuits-and-gravy kind of girl, but I do love a good biscuit—especially warm with butter! Making biscuits with Sprite or even sour cream might sound strange, but trust me. These biscuits are heavenly.

They don't require much time or many ingredients. You can also use this recipe for 7-Up biscuits; just replace the 1/2 cup of Sprite with 7-Up or any other carbonated lemon-lime soda beverage.

These biscuits are great to make if you're looking for recipes for sour cream. Make a batch of these to use up sour cream before it expires! My only word of caution: You might consider making a double batch of these babies because they disappear pretty quickly.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Melt the butter in a glass measuring cup.
  3. In a mixing bowl, use a fork or potato masher to combine the sour cream and Bisquick. Add Sprite and mix until the dough is evenly moistened. Fold in approximately 1/3 of the melted butter.
  4. Flour your work surface with a sprinkling of Bisquick. Knead the dough 3-4 times. Press the dough to 1" thickness. Cut the biscuits with your favorite biscuit cutter or hand-roll.
  5. Pour approximately 1/3 of the melted butter into a baking dish or enough to cover the bottom. Place the biscuits in the dish. Paint the biscuit tops with the remaining melted butter.
  6. Bake the biscuits for 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown.

Baking Biscuits Shaped Like Hearts

I made this batch of biscuits using a heart-shaped sandwich cutter. Keep in mind that as your biscuits bake and rise they may lose a little of their original shape. Simple shapes work best.

Simple Biscuits

I hand-rolled this batch of biscuits. You can fit about 10 or 11 biscuits in a pie plate baking dish. Remember to space them out a bit as they will grow. The batch below baked beautifully and became a dish of pull-apart dinner biscuits.

Tips for Making Beautiful Biscuits

  • Measuring: When measuring your Bisquick mix, spoon it into the dry-ingredient measuring cup and level with knife. Never sift.
  • Freshness: To keep your Bisquick baking mix fresh, keep it in a sealed container and refrigerate after opening. If you don't seal it, it can absorb odors in your fridge.
  • Butter: You can melt your stick of butter all at once and eyeball the thirds or simply cut it into thirds then melt each portion separately.
  • Dough: If your dough is too sticky and too difficult to work with, simply stick it in the fridge for a little bit. Chilled dough is always user-friendly.

This is my go-to recipe for yummy biscuits. If you're looking for an easy recipe, this is one you should try. The only recipes that I've tried that are easier are the biscuit mixes that you just add water to. While they're technically easier than this recipe, the difference in taste is worlds apart. Enjoy!

      Heather, I just had to stop back by to tell you how crazy I am about this recipe. My husband says it's a "just NO" recipe because these biscuits are so terrific he can't quit eating them. As for me, I'm making them for Thanksgiving -- I've never had such fluffy, light biscuits and I can't wait to share them with my family.

      Happy Thanksgiving! -- MJ

      Family cooked breakfast together this morning. Everything we cooked was delicious, but the Sprite biscuits were the conversation piece at the table. Of course, I made the biscuits. You have added a delight to bread making at my house. Thanks again!

      I used "Pioneer Baking Mix" instead of Bisquick and

      omited the butter. The biscuits were DELICIOUS!!

      @Your Cousins-- I'm not sure how they would come out with ginger ale. The lemon-lime and sour cream compliment each other and give the biscuit a hint of tang. I'm curious about trying the ginger ale now. If you try it out let me know or I'll let you know if I do :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)

      @lifelovemystery-- They are! Thanks for reading :)

      @Claudia Tello-- I'm sorry to hear that! I'd love to send a box your way if you'd like. I did some googling and found a bisquick substitution. It is as follows:

      1 cup (125 g) flour

      1 1/2 teaspoons (8 g) baking powder

      1/4 teaspoon (pinch) salt

      1 tablespoon (15 g) shortening, oil, or melted butter

      I haven't done it myself, so I can't say if it taste great or the same. I'd say give it a try? Otherwise, Bisquick is so versatile and nice to have on hand-- I really would send a box to you. Just let me know :)

      @garylutz-- Thanks! I hope you're able to try them and enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by :)

      This sounds like a perfect As recipe. However, I was disappointed to see "bisquick" as one of the 4 ingredients because we don´t have that in Mexico. What kind of flour is it? Could I substitute it with something else?

      I must also congratulate you for your photos, loved how you inserted text in there and the letters you used. My favorite one is the second image, the one with the list of ingredients: great light and composition as well. Had to pin that one.

I personally don't like the taste of diet soda, so I would be worried it might upset the flavor-- but that's just my personal preference. I have, however, read online that people tried diet sodas and didn't like it. I'd say experiment to know for sure. :)

      I've never heard of Sprite biscuits, or tried baking with soda in general. I definitely may have to try some soda-baking in the near future. I'm curious what are your thoughts on using Diet Soda? I love to bake with Bisquick! My personal favorite is bisquick pizza crust.
