    Healthy Cooking Tip

    Baking powder, vegetable oil, and yogurt are the ingredients that produce a tender, flaky biscuit. For browner tops, brush the biscuits with milk or oil before baking. For more flavor, add a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped ham, chives, or mild chile peppers to your biscuit batter.
