    Question:Quick Whipping Cream Biscuits

    Quick Whipping Cream Biscuits

    Hi, these sound fantastic! I thought I'd make them for Thanksgiving, then I saw that each biscuit has over 4,400 grams of sodium. Could this really be right? Seems impossible! We won't be having them if that's correct.

    Thanks,
    Pam

    The number of servings is not shown on the recipe (it just shows yield), so the software calculates it for the entire recipe. If you eat all those biscuits yourself, well, you may have a sodium overload. I'd use unsalted butter that would drop the amount, and self-rising flours to vary in the amount of salt added. If you are watching sodium, you could make your own self-rising flour and reduce the amount a bit.

    Actually, it's not quite the entire recipe. Since the yield is 2 "dozen," it's calculating the nutritional data for 1 dozen. Which makes the sodium content about 370mg each.

    If you look at the detailed analysis, it has the ingredients, shows the 8K+ g sodium for those ingredients, and has 0 for 1 serving. It's not analyzing it per dozen.

    It's calculating for the entire recipe. It says, "Servings per recipe-1."

    Yes, it is. It's reporting 8939mg sodium for the entire recipe on the detail page, and 4469mg "per serving" on the recipe page - that's half the total. The same is true of the calories, the fat, and all the other nutrition data. Since it yields 2 "dozen," the software calculates it on 1 "dozen." If it was reported to yield 4 "widgets," the "per serving" would be 1 "widget," or 1/4 of the total. If it was reported to yield "24 biscuits," it would report the nutrition data per biscuit.
