Easy Homemade Biscuits with Cheddar & Rosemary – the best side dish on the dinner table!
I was talking with a mom from preschool the other day. We were chatting about babies and pregnancy. You know…all that fun stuff you talk with your mom pals about. 😉 Anyway, she’s darling and so tiny. She told me she’s thinner now than she was before having her son.
My first thought was “I hate you”. My second thought was “how?” and then my third was “I hate you” again. It’s all in the carbs, she told me.
Okay, I’ll go cry in a corner somewhere because I will NEVER be able to eat low carb! I just love love looooove carbs too much!
Even at the dinner table tonight, as my son was reaching for a third corn muffin, I told him there was no doubt he was my kid, the way he loves carbs. And corn muffins.
So instead of completely getting rid of carbs, I’m embracing them BUT making them a little healthier. So today, I give you these homemade biscuits. Instead of using a whole cube of butter, they have only 4 tablespoons plus some yogurt for moistness. They’re chock full of cheddar cheese and rosemary. I heart rosemary.
These homemade biscuits might not look like much, but boy are they delish! They’re sure to put a smile on any carb-lovers face!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
- 4 tsp. Truvia Baking Blend or about 3 Tbsp. sugar
- 4 Tbsp. butter softened
- 2 Tbsp. fat free plain greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup fat free milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
- Preheat oven to 425ºF.
- In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar and Truvia.
- Add in butter and yogurt, using a fork or pastry blender. Mix together until combined into small balls.
- Add in milk, mixing until a soft dough forms. Fold in cheese and rosemary.
- Roll or pat out on a floured surface to about 3/4" thick. Cut into circles (I used the top of a glass cup) and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
- Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven or until golden brown. Serve immediately and enjoy!

I could never do a low carb diet either, I love them too much! These biscuits look fantastic, Jen! Love the cheddar and rosemary flavors!
Jen @ Baked by an Introvert says
I love how you are embracing the carbs. I like my fair share of carbs also. These cheddar and rosemary sound wonderful in these homemade biscuits!

Biscuits are a wonderful super quick way to have a delicious hot bread fresh out of the oven and on to the
table. It’s also a quick way to expand a meal if you have an unexpected guest. I love the rosemary in these
which converts them easily to a biscuit perfect for lunch or dinner. Plus I have a rosemary shrub in my garden. Thus I am partial to using that spice.
I love rosemary too! One of my faves. Thanks for stopping by, Carol!
I’m pretty sure we are soul sisters. Save some for me m’kay?
Lol! I will, Kristin!! 🙂

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
Honestly, I’d rather be fat than eat carb-free. No joke! Especially when there are biscuits!! 🙂
Me too, Dorothy! Screw skinny, bring on the carbs! xo!
Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates says
I know all about how effective low carb dieting is and I love the results BUT I can’t get my hands to shop shoveling bread and fruit into my mouth like no other! Sigh. Someday lol Loving that you lightened up these biscuits! My skinny jeans thank you! Pinned!
Girl, we are kindred spirits!! Must go on a lunch date soon and eat breadsticks and carbs together! 🙂 And thanks for the pin!
I wonder how these would turn out using wheat flour?
I’m not sure! I think they might be delicious with white whole wheat flour. Let me know if you try it!
I’m with you. I could never go low carb! I guess I’m glad for people like your tiny friend because it means more biscuits for me! These look so good!! ❤️❤️❤️
Thanks Andi!!! I knew we had a lot in common! 😉
