Do you like 7-UP...?

Have you made or have you even heard of 
7-UP Biscuits...??

Now anyone that knows me very well knows that if I could have only 
ONE FOOD
for the rest of my entire life,
I would choose BISCUITS.....hands down...
Yes sire ree bob...
I do love me some homemade biscuits.


The above, my sweet friends, is
THE START OF SOMETHING BIG...
REAL big...and good...and easy...
and we all luv EASY.....
AMEN, SISTER FRIEND.

I use a cute little juice glass to cut my biscuits sometimes...

especially when I want the biscuits to be on the smaller side.....

my regular metal biscuit cutter make the larger biscuits and I always want TWO so I try to make the smaller ones often.

This is such a nice dough..so easy to work with.....
you're gonna just love it.
You don't have to use a rolling pin/pen...just pat it out to desired thickness...easy as that 

Right into my big ole cast iron skillet...
and some of you might remember me telling you that when my mama
made her biscuits, she always made two small ones...
for my brother and I...


right out of the hot oven, all tender and brown and ready to eat.




 Cast iron skillet makes the bottoms crispy and I love that.




I don't think you will be disappointed with this recipe...
Mr. Sweet said, "don't dare lose this recipe...these are GOOOOD."


SORRY...
I forgot to say that the melted butter goes into your baking pan, cut out biscuits go on top of the butter, then bake.

450 oven for about 20 minutes or until they are nice and brown...
serve up with jelly, honey, syrup or maybe even a little bit of creamed gravy.

  7. Since I know that you know biscuits, I'll run right back to Pinterest and pin Denise's pin! You make'em look and sound so good! I use a Campbell soup can to cut my biscuits.

  8. Well, I've heard of cooking a ham on the bone in a crock pot with "real" 7Up, but this is a new one on me. I love your two little biscuits story...so sweet!

  9. Never heard of using Seven-Up in the mix, but I'm going to give it a try. Just bought some Fredricksburg peach preserves last week, so I need to make some biscuits. Thanks!

  18. I surely DO love these biscuits, but I've always baked mine on top of the butter...never added the butter into the batter. Looks amazing and I'm sure it works. Glad I saw this.

  19. BJ. I had a biscuit and honey tonight with my supper. I stopped at Kentucky Fried Chicken on my way home after spending the rainy day with my two oldest grandsons. Your biscuits sound yummy and add the butter, jelly, or honey and what a way to have them for breakfast or anytime of the day. I am like you praying for all of those that have been affected by the flood waters. It is getting late so I need to head to bed. Have a great day . Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

  29. Those look amazing. I will have to get the stuff to make them this weekend. I think a cast iron skillet does a lot of things better than any new trick in the book. I just fell head over heels for the little biscuits that your mama used to make you. How sweet. Those Mamas just have it all upstairs. I know you have done so many wonderful, wonderful things for your children. One of the best things you do, and you may not hear it enough, is to stay happy and cheerful, positive and interested. I know you are still young, but I have a feeling that will never ever leave you. I struggle. You're my idol! lol..

    Have fun with the biscuits. I intend to make some for Mama on Sunday morning! Yummy.

  32. I've heard of the 7-up biscuits, but have never tried them. Yours look delishish!! When I saw you cutting them with that glass, it instantly reminded me of my Mom! She always cut her biscuits that way!

    Blessings,

  33. Sounds good ! I love me some biscuits, wonder how they would taste if I used Sundrop instead of 7 up. Sundrop is what we drink.

  34. Love your biscuits, B.J. My grandmother used to add 7-Up to cake recipes--I cut biscuits with drinking glasses, too! Or whatever is handy. xxoo
