Savory Scallion Biscuits


1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup minced scallions
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flours. Sprinkle in the baking powder and salt, and stir well. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, yogurt, scallions, dill, and pepper. Blend the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture quickly and thoroughly to form a soft dough.

On a floured board or countertop, pat the dough into a 3/4 inch-thick circle and cut it into eight wedges. Separate the wedges and place them on an oiled baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Serves 8.
