Parmesan-Basil Biscuits

To go along with our FABULOUS Chicken Saltimbocca I whipped up these flavorful Parmesan-Basil Biscuits. I made the biscuit dough in my food processor and they took no time! These were really good. I might add Italian Seasoning next time instead of just basil. The description of the biscuits says this is a Weight Watchers recipe - nobody would guess it though!

Parmesan-Basil Biscuits
(Printable Recipe)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
cooking spray
1 tablespoon finely shredded fresh parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese and basil. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moist. Spoon dough evenly into 8 mounds on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray(I used my Large Scoop from Pampered Chef to make the biscuits). Lightly coat tops of biscuits with cooking spray (I used a butter flavored spray) and sprinkle with finely shredded Parmesan cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
Pin It!
