  1. Look so yummy! We’re using your blog as the theme of a cooking night tomorrow, and I’m going to try these out. Do you think I could get by with subbing nonfat plain greek yogurt for sour cream?

    1. I am not sure? I often use greek yogurt as a substitute for sour cream, but in this case, I don’t think there will be enough fat in the greek yogurt to use as a successful substitute. That said, you can always try and see how they turn out! I also LOVE the recipe for Butter Biscuits I posted recently and the Cracker Barrel Copycat Biscuits. Good luck! Oh, and how fun that you’re using ABK as a theme for a cooking night! So honored!!!

    1. Joyce,

      Thanks for reading ABK!
