Diet.Guru's picture
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Cheddar cheese 2 Ounce
  Imitation bacon bits 2 Teaspoon
  Onion flakes 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Ground red pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Margarine 8 Teaspoon
  Plain low fat yogurt 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dijon style mustard 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped fresh parsley/Chives 2 Tablespoon
  Grated parmesan cheese 4 Teaspoon
Directions

In small mixing bowl combine flour, Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, onion flakes, salt, and pepper.
With pastry blender, or 2 knives used scissors-fashion, cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse meal; add yogurt and mix thoroughly.
Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Between two sheets of wax paper roll dough, forming a rectangle about 1/8-inch thick.
Spread mustard over dough and sprinkle with parsley (or chives), then roll up jelly-roll fashion; wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until dough slices easily, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Cut rolled dough into 1/4-inch-thick pin-wheels; place on parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet.
Sprinkle each pinwheel with an equal amount of Parmesan cheese and bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
