Common Questions About 7-Up Biscuits
How does the 7-Up soda affect the biscuits?
The carbonation in the 7-Up soda helps create a light and airy texture in the biscuits. The soda also adds a subtle hint of sweetness to the dough.
Can I use another soda instead of 7-Up?
Yes, you can substitute other clear, lemon-lime sodas such as Sprite or Sierra Mist in place of 7-Up. The key is to use a clear soda with similar carbonation levels.
How do I prevent the biscuits from sticking to the biscuit cutter?
To avoid sticking, dip the biscuit cutter in flour before cutting each biscuit. Also, avoid twisting the cutter when pressing down, as this can seal the edges and prevent the biscuits from rising properly. If you find they stick to the pan, use some parchment paper underneath them.
Who can say no to soft, fluffy biscuits? Save some dough for later for a last-minute addition to any dinner.
Store leftover 7-Up Biscuits in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To reheat, wrap the biscuits in aluminum foil and warm them in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes.
You can freeze unbaked biscuits by placing them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freezing them until solid. Then, transfer the frozen biscuits to an airtight container or freezer bag and store them for up to 3 months.
Bake frozen biscuits at 425°F, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time. Or thaw to room temperature and bake according to the recipe.
