Closest thing to KFC biscuits I've ever tried. Once you try this simple recipe, you will be sold. Melt in your mouth good.

This is not so much a review of the recipe, but a review of the reviewers. Don't give a recipe a 3 star rating when you didn't even try it as is. Here is a paraphrase "I made all these changes and they were not good. Here is a 3 star rating." How dumb is that? You didn't even review this recipe. You reviewed a completely different recipe that you created on your own. Make the recipe as it is written and review it as written, or don't review it at all. I see this all the time on this site.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups baking mix (Jiffy or Bisquick)
  • 12 cup sour cream
  • 12 cup 7-Up soda (any clear carbonated drink will work)
  • 14 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut the sour cream into your biscuit mix. "Cutting in" is simply incorporating your sour cream, butter or shortening into your dry baking mix without using a mixer. You can use a fork, knife, pastry cutter or the tools God gave you, your fingers. You just want to make sure that each portion of your {wet} ingredient gets coated with the dry mix.
  3. Stir in 1/2 cup 7 Up. The dough will be very soft, don't worry.
  4. Sprinkle additional baking mix on to your counter, about a 1/2 cup seems to work just fine.
  5. Knead and fold dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat dough out, (no rolling pin needed) and cut biscuits using a round biscuit/cookie cutter. Don't have one, no problem, you can certainly use a glass or empty soup can to cut out your biscuits. Where there's a will, there's a way! Improvising is fine.
  6. Melt butter in a 9 inch square pan. I stick my pan and butter in the oven for a few minutes. Just a few though, the butter will burn, so watch it.
  7. Place cut biscuits on top of melted butter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown.
