Easy 7Up Drop Biscuits Recipe
This fun biscuit recipe has been floating around kitchens for some time. Not surprising, it’s featured on the 7Up Brand website. I pretty much make them just as the recipe directs but, prefer making them as drop biscuits to simplify preparation and skip the rolling and cutting. It’s particularly helpful on a busy day.
Do You Have To Have A Cast Iron Skillet To Make 7Up Drop Biscuits?
The short answer is no, you can bake this biscuits in any size similar pan. I’m particularly partial to baking these biscuits in a cast iron skillet for the crust that it gives to the biscuits plus, that’s literally how I learned to make biscuits as a little girl. My entire family bakes biscuits in cast iron as the preferred baking method. It’s not a problem if you don’t have a cast iron skillet they can, of course, be baked in any similar-size baking dish.
