I haven't tried this but it's only 2.5 points on the Weight Watchers program. Might be worth it.
- 2 cups Bisquick reduced-fat baking mix
- 3⁄4 cup low-fat buttermilk (1% fat)
- 1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons fleischmann fat-free margarine or 2 tablespoons fat free butter substitute or 2 tablespoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter® Spread
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, crushed fine
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine the baking mix, milk and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl.
- Mix by hand until well combined.
- Divide the dough into 12 equal portions (about 3 tbsp each) and spoon onto a lightly greased or nonstick cookie sheet.
- Flatten each biscuit a bit with your fingers.
- Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to brown.
- In a small bowl, combine the buttery spread with the garlic powder and the parsley flakes.
- Heat this mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave, then brush a light coating over the top of each biscuit.
These biscuits baked up nice, and I liked the buttermilk in them, but I think they need a little more seasoning. If I would make them again, I'd add a little more seasoning to them.
If I were you, I would memorize this recipie, then burn all traces of it and horde it selfishly - it's fabulous! So easy, low fat, and everyone loved them. I Had to add about 3 tbs buttermilk because the mix was too dry, and I used just plain old Jiffy baking mix and plain margarine instead of what was listed, but otherwise followed this exactly. This is excellent!!
These were pretty good, but since I don't normally eat biscuits, I don't have to find a WW recipe to satisfy a Red Lobster Cheddar biscuit craving; I preferred the 2 previous full-fat versions I had tried recently. On the other hand, my MIL will give her rating tomorrow -- she would live off RL cheese biscuits if she could. However, this had just the right amount of "butter". Thanks for posting this version, Kannwilson. Made for I Recommend Tag based on the recommendation of Andi of Longmeadow Farm.
