I don't care for biscuits, myself. Years of growing up on my mother's salty hockey pucks tends to sour you on the whole deal. Now, I do love me some strawberry shortcake using biscuits, mostly because the biscuits get soaked with strawberry juices, and then covered over with sweetened whipped cream - who wouldn't like that? Anyway, the idea of biscuits made with soda pop intrigued me, and I just happened to have a 1/2 case of Sprite sitting around, so I tried these. I followed the recipe, although I tossed the dough onto a well floured counter so I could pat it out and make square cut biscuits. I put them in my buttered glass casserole dish, and had to bake them at 350 in my oven, because my oven only seems to recognize two temperatures, 350 and then 450. I just baked them longer, until they were golden brown, maybe 25 minutes. They didn't rise super high, which is not a problem, but they had a lovely crisp exterior with a super soft, moist almost fluffy interior. They were NOT salty, nor were they sweet. They were just bland the way a neutral biscuit should be, and I actually liked them without doctoring them up - although that blackberry seedless jam in the fridge does seem to be calling my name. Tonight we'll have them as dessert biscuits with strawberries, and I guarantee my husband asks me to make them again for breakfast sausage gravy. Love them!
