Before you know it, summer and bikini season will be right around the corner. I slacked over the winter with my workouts so I’ve been trying hard to eat well and work out more to get back in shape. It’s not easy for me because I adore comfort food and always crave heavy greasy foods.
Today I was really craving these:

You might have seen them on Pinterest before. I decided on a whim to experiment and make them at our family Christmas dinner. It was risky because I’d never made them before and sometimes testing random recipes off the internet can be risky. The gamble paid off, because they were unbelievably delicious!
And my family LOVED them. Of course they laughed and were very skeptical beforehand when they saw that 7Up was a component but…once they saw them come out of the oven all doubt was removed. They look beautiful and…
they taste JUST like Popeye’s biscuits!!
If you saw these on Pinterest before and were wondering about them, they are a SURE thing! They are flaky and taste out of this world.
And they are easy to make:
2 cups Bisquick 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup 7-up 1/4 cup melted butter
- Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up.
- Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out.
- Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan.
- Place cut biscuits in pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.
The only thing I might do next time is remove half the butter. I think the amount of butter in the recipe is a little excessive and could be reduced.
Hmm…maybe if I remove half the butter I can justify them in my diet and make them now?
That sounds reasonable doesn’t it?? :)
