Cherry 7-Up Biscuits

Happy Valentines' Day. I love this day since I can make everything pink and nobody complains! I make these 7-up Biscuits quite often (or at least when dinner requires a good biscuit). I had a bottle of Cherry 7-Up on hand and decided to give a whirl and see if they'd turn pink. They dough wasn't quite pink enough for what I was looking for so I opened a can of beets and added a tablespoon of the juice and that did the trick. 

FYI .. these do not taste like 7-up or Cherry 7-Up - they are a delicious flaky (very) buttery bisuit. No extra butter is necessary. They are great with a bit of jam on honey drizzled on them.

 Bisquick, Cherry 7-Up, Sour Cream, Butter, Beet Juice
Mix all ingredients, except the butter

Melt the butter in x 9x9 baking dish. Drop biscuits into buttered baking dish

Bake for 12-15 minutes

Cherry 7-Up Biscuits ....

  • 2 c Bisquick
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 1/2 c Cherry 7-up
  • 1/4 c butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp beet juice (optional to make the color more intense)


Mix Bisquick, sour cream and 7 up. Dough will be very soft - don't worry :)  Melt butter in bottom of cookie sheet pan or 9x9 baking dish. Drop biscuits on top of melted butter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown at 425 degrees.
