These drop biscuits are very easy to make. Serve them with soup, scrambled eggs or salads.


1 cup chopped California Walnuts, divided
1 1/3 cups all-purpose Flour
½ cup whole wheat Flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking Powder
2 teaspoons granulated Sugar
2 teaspoons dried Basil, crushed
¼ cup (1/2 stick) cold Butter, cut into small pieces
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons oil-packed sun dried Tomatoes, drained and chopped
¾ cup low-fat (1%) Cottage cheese
2/3 cup low-fat (1%) Milk


Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.
Chop ½ cup of the walnuts very fine, about the size of rice grains.

In a large bowl combine finely chopped walnuts, flours, baking powder, sugar and basil. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in Parmesan, sun dried tomatoes and remaining ½ cup walnuts.

Make a well in center of dry mixture; add cottage cheese and milk to well. Stir with a fork just until dough is evenly moistened.

Scoop twelve mounds of dough, about ½ cup each, onto prepared pan. Bake 18-20 minutes until brown on bottom and tops are golden. Serve warm.
