1 cup nonfat buttermilk
2 1/2 cups low-fat biscuit and baking mix
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon fines herbes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 package rapid-rise yeast
3 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Vegetable cooking spray
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes


Place buttermilk in a 2-cup glass measure; microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until buttermilk reaches 130°.

Combine baking mix and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, stirring with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Sprinkle flour evenly over work surface. Turn dough out onto floured surface, and knead 4 or 5 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut into rounds with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place rounds on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Coat rounds with cooking spray, and sprinkle with parsley. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 10 minutes. Bake at 400° for 14 minutes or until biscuits are golden.
