cheddar & Green Onion Biscuits

The original recipe calls for sour cream but i didn’t have any. They were great without it anyway! The original recipe had more milk but it was too much so i’ve decreased it here. Add a little more if your dough is too stiff.

1 Tbsp Splenda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp table salt

1/4 cup finely chopped Green Onions
2/3 cup skim milk
