Yogurt gives these savoury biscuits a moist and tender texture, while green onion, garlic and sesame gives them and extra yummy taste. Enjoy  warm from the oven and watch them disappear.


2 cups 500 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
2 tsp 10 mL baking powder
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
½ tsp 2 mL salt
⅓ cup 75 mL Crisco® All Vegetable Shortening, cold, cut in pieces
1 cup 250 mL plain yogurt
½ cup 125 mL thinly sliced green onion
1 clove minced garlic
2 tbsp 30 mL plain yogurt
2 tbsp 30 mL sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF (220ºC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or fingers until it is in pea size bits. Add yogurt, green onions and garlic. Mix to combine. Gather dough into a ball and gently knead everything together.
  3. Pat dough on a lightly floured work surface until it is ¾” (2cm) thick round. Cut with a lightly floured 2” (5cm) cookie cutter. Gather up scraps and repeat with remaining dough. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Brush with remaining 2 tbsp (30mL) yogurt and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
