A carbonated beverage like soda pop (or sparkling water) adds lift and a subtle flavor influence.

Use parchment paper or wax paper to easily press together dough instead of rolling it out and risking a heavy biscuit.

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups self rising flour
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper, optional
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp chopped herbs like parsley, chives, dill, or thyme, optional but adds lots of flavor
  • ½ stick (4 TB) unsalted butter, very cold and cut into cubes
  • ½ cup carbonated soda beverage (I have used carbonated water, rootbeer, and Ale-8)
  • ¼ cup milk

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Step 2

Pour flour into a large bowl. Add pepper and salt.

Step 3

Cut butter into flour until pea size pieces form.

Step 4

Stir in Ale-8 and milk just until dry ingredients are moist.

Step 5

Dump onto a lightly floured surface. Using fingertips, knead just until mass holds together. Pat out with fingertips to 1/2" even thickness. Or, my favorite trick is to dump mass onto a sheet of waxed paper. Grab the edges of the paper and press into the dough, turn, repeat pressing, turn, repeat again. Then pat out until 1/2" thick.

Step 6

Cut into biscuits using a 2” cutter. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Step 7

Bake for 15-17 minutes (internal temperature 200 degrees) or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Serve hot.

    I am addicted! I was out of butter so I used butter flavored Crisco. I added a big handful of cranberries to the dough. I don’t have self rising flour but 3 tsp. of baking powder and 1/4 tsp. of baking soda did same thing sifted with the flour. Parsley was my fresh herb and I had root beer soda in the fridge. No butter so I used a sweet cream cheese spread instead of butter to serve on the biscuits.

      Wow! You’ve totally made this recipe your own! I pair rootbeer with my sweet potato biscuit recipe. I’ll share soon on here. The cranberries, genius!
