Dr. Pepper Biscuits

Last night we tried a recipe from a cookbook I found at the library book sale - Favorite Recipes of Alabama Vocational Home Economics Teachers. The recipe is:

Dr. Pepper Biscuits
2 c. Bisquick mix
1/2 t. dried Italian seasoning
2/3 c. Dr. Pepper

Mix ingredients and form into a soft ball. Sprinkle a small amount of Bisquick onto work surface and knead dough. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter into tea size biscuits. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Can be split and filled with meat for parties or served as bread for a meal. (Suitable for freezing.)

Okay. Here's what I did:
-substituted Coke for Dr. Pepper because it's what we had and I didn't feel like going up to the Piggly Wiggly.
-dropped the dough by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet because I didn't feel like kneading, rolling, and cutting dough, nor did I want to have the extra clean-up to do afterwards.
-baked them for 10 minutes exactly.

We ended up with 16 biscuits which were delicious served with pork roast, mashed potatoes, corn, and clementines.

A very creative cook must have come up that recipe. Either that or they were out of milk and really wanted a biscuit.

was it anything like the cheese biscuits that are so tasty at Red Lobsters?

Yes, Dana, except that it had no cheese - and we love those biscuits, too.

Google got me to your blog. Very Interesting. I have 3 of those cookbooks that were my moms. She's been gone for 14 years now, and I am just discovering what a treasure they are! Hope you try more of those recipes.
