I like biscuits, and who doesn’t, but I had never made them. I asked a friend if I could have her recipe. When I looked it over, I asked, no baking soda? Well, I don’t think I could have upset her more if I tried. “Are you making soda biscuits or country biscuits?” Since these are country biscuits, take heed no baking soda. I’ll never make that mistake again. I modified it a little to reduce the fat and calorie intake. These are easy to make and are delicious.


  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 cup of low fat milk
  • 1/2 cup of melted low sodium low fat margarine
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1-3 tbsp of sugar (depending on how sweet you like them) I used 1 tbsp


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix dry ingredients.
  3. Add milk and melted margarine. Stir until moistened. Do not over mix. (best to let the margarine cool a bit before adding)
  4. Immediately drop by heaping tablespoons onto lightly greased or parchment paper lined large cookie sheet.
  5. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until edges turn golden brown.
