Notes

Helpful Hint:  If using a food processor and processing all ingredients, including cheese, yield will be 14 biscuits, and the cheese is then imperceptible.

Variation:  Plain Cheese Biscuits:  To wet ingredients, add liquid sweetener to equal 2 tsp (10 mL) sugar and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract.  Omit garlic, basil and dried parsley.  (4.8/4.1 g carbs)

Plain Cheese Scones:  Use only 2 tbsp (30 mL) whipping cream.  To the wet ingredients, add liquid sweetener to equal 4 tsp (20 mL) sugar and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract.  Omit garlic, basil and dried parsley. Remember to add the salt. Process cheese into batter. Nuke scones that have been refrigerated briefly and serve warm.  Yield:  12 scones. (4.3 g carbs)
