  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a NONSTICK baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. 2. In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar (substitute), baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and sugar.

  4. 4. Transfer dough to a floured board. Knead a few times and pat to a 1 inch thickness RECTANGLE. DIP A sharp knife in the flour, then CUT THE DOUGH into thirds LENGTHWISE. Then cut each long strip into 6 EQUAL PIECES (making 18 squares). Transfer biscuits to prepared baking sheet.

  5. 5. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes OR until tops are GOLDEN and FIRM TO THE TOUCH. Serve warm.
