What could be better than sweet, bubbling fruit nestled under tender, flaky sour cream biscuits? Our version of this traditional comfort food is a delicious and low-fat alternative!



16 oz unsweetened frozen strawberries, thawed for 15 minutes   
14 oz frozen rhubarb, or fresh, cut into 1-inch pieces, thawed for 15 minutes if frozen   
1/3 cup(s) sugar   
1 Tbsp cornstarch   
1 1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour   
3 Tbsp sugar, divided   
3/4 tsp baking powder   
1/4 tsp baking soda   
4 Tbsp reduced-calorie margarine, cut into small pieces   
1/2 cup(s) fat-free sour cream   
1/4 cup(s) fat-free skim milk   
1 large egg(s), lightly beaten   


  • Preheat oven to 375º F. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and cornstarch. Mix well and spoon mixture into bottom of prepared pan.
  • To prepare dough, in a large bowl or food processor, combine flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Add margarine and mix with your fingers or process in the food processor until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  • Add sour cream and milk and mix until dough comes together.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 5 times, until blended.
  • Divide dough into 16 equal pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. Place balls on top of strawberry-rhubarb mixture and gently press down to flatten. Brush the surface of dough with egg and sprinkle remaining sugar over top.
  • Bake until filling is bubbly and top is golden brown, 45 minutes. Cool 15 minutes before serving. Yields about 1/2 cup fruit mixture and 2 biscuits per serving
I think serving this with Bryer's Smooth and Dreamy Fat Free Vanilla ice cream is absolute must.  
I made the Shrimp-Fried Rice and decided it need more soy sauce at the table.  I served it with a sweet and sour slow cook recipe.  Lower in fat and super tasty.  The recipe can be found here
