#3841 - Parmesan Pepper Biscuits

(by Shirley McNevich)

2 cups + 2 TBSP flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. baking powder
7 TBSP cold butter
2 scallions (finely chopped)
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk
kosher salt for sprinkling

In a bowl add flour, black pepper, baking powder and salt--whisk to mix. Cut the cold butter into small pieces, then place them on a small plate and freeze them for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add the butter pieces to the flour mixture--toss well. Add the chopped scallions and grated Parmesan cheese--toss well. Add the buttermilk--mix with your hands just until dough forms. Roll out the dough on a floured counter to 8" x 8" square. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 2" x 2" pieces and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle a little kosher salt over each piece of dough. Bake at 425 degrees 12-16 minutes or until golden brown.
