LUCY BURDETTE: Lots of baked goods have whopping amounts of sodium hidden in them--in the form of baking powder, baking soda, and salt itself. But sodium watchers shouldn't have to give up everything delicious. These easy biscuits spark up any dinner or even breakfast.
2 cups flour (1/2 cup can be cornmeal or whole wheat)
2 teaspoons sugar
4 teaspoons no-sodium baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup fresh herbs, chopped (I used dill and chives but you are the cook!)
2/3 cup milk
Stir the dry ingredients together, then cut in the herbs and the butter until pea-sized. I use my food processor, but you can use a pastry cutter or even two knives, the old fashioned way.
Stir in the milk until the ingredients are just mixed. Pat or roll the dough out onto a floured counter and cut into biscuit-sized squares. Settle the biscuits on a baking pan lined with parchment to make clean-up easy.
Bake in a 425 oven until just brown.
Then serve with lots of unsalted butter and honey!
