24 servings


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
3 medium green onions, chopped (3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup apple juice
1/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 egg
2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt


Preheat the oven to 375°F (191°C). Grease baking sheet, spray with cooking spray or line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C). Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Mix flour, cheese, onions, cilantro, baking powder, baking soda, salt and red pepper in large bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Mix apple juice, 1/3 cup yogurt and the egg; stir into flour mixture until dough leaves side of bowl.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead about 1 minute or until smooth. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into 9-inch circle that is 1/4 inch thick. Place each circle on baking sheet. Cut each circle into 12 wedges with floured knife, but do not separate. Brush 1 tablespoon yogurt over each circle.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully separate wedges; remove from baking sheets to wire cooling rack. Serve warm.
