|Servings: 12 Biscuits|
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon PLUS 2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons butter, chilled
3/4 cup lowfat buttermilk
1 1/2 ozs. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper; spray with cooking spray.
In medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Add 2 tablespoons of the butter and blend with pastry cutter (I use a fork) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add buttermilk and cheese; combine with fork, handling dough as little as possible.
Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet; bake until lightly browned, about 8-10 minutes.
While biscuits are baking, in a small microwavable bowl, place the remaining 1 tablespoon butter; microwave on HIGH until melted, 5-10 seconds. Stir in garlic powder and Old Bay Seasoning (optional); set aside.
When biscuits are done, remove from oven and brush butter/seasoning mixture evenly over warm biscuits. Remove from baking sheet and serve immediately.
Makes approximately 12 biscuits.
