Sour Cream Biscuits


2 cups of Bisquick Baking Mix

½ cup of sour cream (any variety is fine)

½ cup of Sprite or 7-Up

¼ cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place 2 cups of Bisquick in a large bowl. Add the sour cream, and cut the sour cream into the Bisquick mixture using a pastry cutter. Next, add the soda (Sprite or 7-Up), and mix together well. The dough mixture will be soft. Next, prepare the counter for rolling out the biscuits. Sprinkle some additional dry Bisquick mix onto the counter surface and pat dough out onto the counter, kneading the dough gently. Tear off a small portion of the dough and roll into a small ball, about the size of a golf ball. Continue to roll the dough into small balls for baking. Now, melt ¼ cup butter in a 9” square baking pan.

Place the balls of biscuits in the pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.
