Scallion Drop Biscuits

This recipe can be made with a food processor to combine dry ingredients and shortening. Pulse a few times until the mixture is the size of peas. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can substitute plain yogurt.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in green onions. Add buttermilk, stirring just until flour mixture is moist. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 16 biscuits.
