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.
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
9-12 biscuits, depending on size
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/2 cup Sprite
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Melt the butter in a glass measuring cup.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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!
