READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sherrybeth

These were presented at a meeting with a great dietician about 6 months ago. I've been making them ever since and my family guessed they were reduced fat!

Loved the lower fat, but still so flavorful biscuits!!! I made 1/4 of the recipe, which rendered 2 large biscuits. I made it with the low fat cheddar cheese, 2% buttermilk but had to sub full fat sour cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats on your win in the football pool!!!
