When my mom served Christmas brunch, we were treated to the world’s most perfect biscuits. They were perfect because they were 1) made with love, 2) deliciously fluffy, and 3) healthy-ish. The recipe had been circling among my mom and her sisters, but now I’ve finally got my hands on it!
I’m all about modifying recipes of the foods we love to make them somewhat better for us. And while this recipe is modified from more traditional biscuit recipes, nothing is lost in the taste department. In fact, my whole family enjoyed them more than any restaurant-style biscuit we’d had! I’ve already made a couple batches on recent weekends for Rob and me to enjoy throughout the week.
7-Up Biscuits shared by Brenda Scholl
(makes 16 biscuits)
Here’s what you need:
4 cups of Heart Smart Bisquick + extra for patting out
1 cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt (measured out precisely)
1 cup of Diet 7-Up, room temperature (measured out precisely)
1/4 cup of margarine, melted
Here’s what you do:
Thoroughly mix Bisquick, yogurt, and 7-Up. I ended up adding about 1/4 cup more Bisquick since my dough was still very soft and sticky, so feel free to add more to yours. Sprinkle some Bisquick on a clean counter. Plop dough on counter and spread out using a spatula sprinkled with Bisquick (it was too sticky to knead with my hands). Spread it into the approximate size/shape of your 9×13 pan, and about 1/2 inch thick. Pour the melted margarine into the 9×13 baking dish. Score dough and separate into biscuits (four rows by four rows). Place biscuits on top of margarine in a single layer in the baking dish and bake for 15 minutes until barely golden on the top.
Enjoy immediately or freeze for later. Great with a drizzle of honey, some jam, a turkey sausage patty, or an egg in the middle!
