These Skinny Cheddar Dill Biscuits have a ton of flavor, and are on the lighter side!


Dry ingredients
All purpose flour 10 Ounce (2 cups)
Baking powder 4 Teaspoon
Sugar 2 Teaspoon
Garlic powder 1 Teaspoon
Old bay seasoning 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Grated sharp cheddar cheese 6 Ounce
Chopped fresh dill 2 Tablespoon (or chives, or scallions)
Wet ingredients
Cold milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)



1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.


2. In a food processor, add flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic powder, old bay seasoning, and salt. Pulse to combine.

3. Add the grated cheddar and dill to the bowl and pulse 2-3 times to distribute.

4. Into a large mixing bowl, dump the mixture and pour the milk. Use a spatula to toss the ingredients around. In order to prevent biscuits from getting tough, we want to use a light hand and only mix until the dry and wet ingredients are combined.

5. Take a cookie scoop and portion out 1/4 cup scoops of the biscuit mixture onto a baking sheet.

6. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.


7. Serve and enjoy!


If the dough is too dry, add 1/4 cup additional milk. All the flour should be moistened, and the dough should be sticky.
