Light Yogurt Drop Biscuits

Today’s recipe is for Light Yogurt Drop Biscuits. I got this recipe out of a Pillsbury Healthy Baking Cookbook. The original recipe called for sour cream, but I decided to substitute it with nonfat plain yogurt. I think it came out well.

There are a few things that I really like about this recipe. They are better for you than traditional biscuits. Not that I don’t eat regular biscuits occasionally, but I am trying to feed our family healthier foods on a daily basis.

I also really like that they are drop biscuits, so no rolling out the dough and cutting out shapes. You just measure your dough and drop it on the baking sheet. It couldn’t be easier.
