This is another recipe that was in the 2008 Weight Watchers cookbook that I've played around with. These are good leftover toasted.

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.

  5. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moist.
  6. Spoon dough evenly into 8 mounds on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  7. Lightly coat tops of biscuits with cooking spray (I used a butter flavored spray) and sprinkle with finely shredded Parmesan cheese.

  9. Serve immediately.

Nimz- if I could do 10 stars I would! Thjese are great! So easy to put together and fast out of te oven. I scaled the recipe to 1/2 asthere is only DH and I. Perfection! Each bite gave you a bit of the "mmmm mmmmm's" DH is not a huge bread eater and he gobbled 2 of them. Great testament to your recipe. Tonight I am going to try this recipe with cheddar cheese.

Oh My GOSH!!!! These were incredible. I made them almost exactly as written (only used 1/2 tsp dried basil). It was so good. I ate half the batch before they could even cool last night. I coudn't ask for an easier, tastier recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
