  • sheet pan
  • silicone baking mat


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup cold salted whipped butter (divided)
  • 1 cup 0% fat Greek Yogurt
  • 4 cloves minced or grated garlic (divided)
  • 2 ounces shredded part-skim cheddar cheese
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a sheet pan with a silicone mat for best results and adjust the rack on the top third of the oven.
  • Combine dry ingredients with a fork. Cut 2 tablespoons of the butter in with a pastry knife for best results or 2 forks if you don’t have one, until no longer visible.
  • Add the yogurt, cheddar, half the garlic and mix with a fork.
  • Then, using your hands knead the dough at least 20 times until it holds together and becomes tacky and smooth.* Form it into a flat ball and cut into 8 equal pieces. Roll each into a ball, then place it on the prepared baking sheet, , slightly flattened 1/2 inch thick.
  • Spray biscuits with oil and bake on the top rack about 20 to 24 minutes or until golden, no need to turn. Once done, let them rest 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a small frying pan, add the remaining garlic and saute on low heat about 1 minute until fragrant. When the biscuits are ready, brush them with the melted garlic butter and top with parsley.


You can halve, double or triple the recipe as needed.

*The dough will seem dry at first but if you keep kneading it, it will hold together into a large ball and should become a little tacky, that’s when you know you kneaded it enough.
