    Default Could someone help me out, please?

    I have a recipe that my family loves (and I do too). It is for biscuits that I usually serve with soup or stew. I am curious as to how many pts a biscuit would be. Would someone be so kind as to run this through MC for me. TIA!!!

    Annie

    3 Cups flour
    1 cup margarine
    1 egg
    1 cup skim milk
    5 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt

    Makes 12 biscuits
    BUT, I'D MAKE 16 IF THE POINTS ARE THROUGH THE ROOF!!!

    You don't even need mastercook for this. You can do it with your Complete Food Companion!

    That makes each biscuit 5.16 pt if you make 12 biscuits, and 3.75 pt if you make 16 biscuits.

    Using the NI from the MC database they came out higher than just dividing the points. The type of margarine you use could make a big difference here I'd think.

    I would have to really love these biscuits to want to spend this many points on them.

    There are so many other choices that would be just as good!
