Cheddar Cheese Bite-Size Biscuits

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic members: Journal as 1 slice bread OR 1 serving crackers

3/4 cup unbleached white flour

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup light cream cheese

2 cups shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (an 8-ounce bag of pre-shredded cheese works perfectly)

4 tablespoons margarine with 8 or 9 grams of fat per tablespoon

1/4 cup low-fat milk or fat-free half-and-half

  • Place whole-wheat and white flour in food processor. Add cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and margarine to food processor bowl. Pulse for about 5 seconds to blend well.
  • Drizzle milk over the top of the mixture and pulse until a dough forms (about 3 seconds). Add another tablespoon of milk if necessary.
  • Use about a tablespoon of dough to roll into a ball and place on a cookie sheet coated with canola cooking spray.
  • Cover and refrigerate cookie sheet while preheating oven to 400-degrees.
  • Bake until set, about 15 minutes. Store cheese bite-size biscuits in an airtight container or in a sealable gallon-size plastic bag. Serve at room temperature or slightly warmed up when ready.
