Sour Cream 7-up Biscuits

A jazzed up shortcut, baking mix biscuit, that uses lemon-lime soda and sour cream, resulting in the lightest most tender, delicious and easy biscuit.

Sour Cream 7-up Biscuits

These are a super tender, light, and melt in your mouth biscuit perfect for a slather of butter, wrapping around slices of salty ham, or spooning over with sausage gravy or tomato gravy. The texture of these are just a bit different from old fashioned buttermilk biscuits, more soft & creamy, with a touch of sweet.

My favorite baking mix to use is Pioneer Buttermilk Baking Mix, though any good baking mix will work. This is a great way to jazz up those baking mix biscuits. The use of soda - as in Coca Cola, 7-up, Dr. Pepper, Sprite - in baked goods has been around for years, well at least it has in this part of the Deep South, as has this recipe. I have no idea scientifically what the components do, but what I can tell you is that these biscuits are fantastic!

Place the biscuits on a half sheet baking pan just slightly touching each other for soft sided biscuits, or spread them slightly apart for crispier sides. I prefer them with softer sides, and I am especially partial to those perfect ones that are right in the middle. I'm that way with sheet cake too. And cinnamon rolls. And brownies!

I have seen across the net that some people call this biscuit a "Popeye's" copycat biscuit, as in Popeye's Famous Fried Chicken & Biscuits aka now Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen. Well, now... I do love me some Popeye's biscuits from far back in the day when Al Copeland owned the joint and nobody but those of us hanging out in New Orleans, Louisiana (or actually on the outskirts in St. Bernard Parish) knew what Popeye's even was, well outside of a cartoon sailor who ate spinach and loved Olive Oyl... well, I don't know about that.

While they may not be anywhere near the Popeye's biscuit I know and love, I will tell you, they are a very tender, light, delicious and super easy biscuit to make, so let's make some! Here's how.
