It was an accident. I promise. I didn’t intend to make biscuits with beer. It just happened.
Honest. I started with my Bisquick. I also got the oven cranking to 450 degrees
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!
- 2 cups bisquick
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup of beer
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- Cut sour cream into the Bisquick to make a crumbly mixture.
- Add beer and stir to combine. The dough will be very soft and sticky.
- Place three tablespoons of the butter in a round or square 9-inch cake pan. Place in a 450 degree oven till butter is just melted.
- Remove pan and then drop 7-9 biscuits into butter. Melt remaining tablespoon of butter and pour over biscuits.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes on 450 degrees.
And yes, the kids and I ate the whole pan. What can I say, we are carb loaders:)
