I had one of these biscuits at the Whole Foods hot bar but they didn't sell them on the shelves. They were the best biscuits I ever tasted (but we must factor in the fact that I've denied myself bread-type items for a year). Whole Foods listed the ingredients and it said the biscuits were made by Sandy Dunn of Lexington. Her website said she concentrated on making a low sodium trans-fat-free healthier type biscuits but she gave no recipe of course. I don't plan to go into business making these so I think it's okay just for personal use to try to recreate them using the ingredients WF listed. But WF was vague. You all have helped a lot!!

Thank you for the warning Sir Loin, I'll steer clear of vegetable shortening and substitute a type of shortening that has no trans fat. Thank you for the recipe. It looks easy to make and ty for the helpful tips.
Whiskadoodle, the chicken pot pie is a great idea for my family.
SaltNpepper, What a good photo of your biscuits and gravy! Thx for the recipe
BakeChef, thank you for that tip. I have Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread I can use ( 0 trans fat ). Will that work? It has 100mg of sodium per TBSP but that's only 4% DV and spread out over several biscuits. Low sodium is fine.
CWS, That's interesting info. When I mentioned "No Salt" I meant "No Added Salt". I'll use the Club Soda as you suggested. Thank you.
Zhizara and the Princess, thx for the tips
