Beer Biscuits

It was an accident. I promise. I didn’t intend to make biscuits with beer. It just happened.

I was really trying to make these 7-UP biscuits from Plain Chicken’s blog.

Honest. I started with my Bisquick. I also got the oven cranking to 450 degrees.

Added 1/2 cup of sour cream.

Combined to make a crust like consistency almost. See. Crumbly.

Now time for the 7-Up or Sprite or other clear, bubbly lemon-lime pop. Insert swearing under my breath when I can’t find any in my house or garage.

In comes plan B!

I grabbed a can of the husband’s brew. He was gone. His is cheaper than mine. Really, I just didn’t want to waste on of my 312s on this just in case it flopped.

Measured out 1/2 cup and poured it into the Bisquick mix.

Dust the counter top with some, well really quite a bit of, Bisquick. The dough is STICKY! Go ahead and toss some Bisquick on top of the dough too. Pat it sort of flat.

I put a 1/2 stick of butter in a round, or you could use a square, cake pan. Popped the pan in the oven to melt the butter.

When it was melted I cut out biscuits with a round biscuit cutter. A knife would do the job too. You will get between 7-9 biscuits depending on the the size of them.

Then toss them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes.

They grow together and form a butter crisp bottom with fluffy, billowy insides. They were a great addition to our three cheese baked spaghetti. I am not sure I will ever try the version with pop. The beer version is too good. Plus, someone had to finish the beer!

And yes, the kids and I ate the whole pan. What can I say, we are carb loaders:)

    DOn't know if you follow It's a Small Town Life, but I made her 7-up biscuits, and they were divine! I'm sure these are just as good as I am a huge fan of beer bread too!.
