Black Pepper Biscuits

Black Pepper Biscuits

These black pepper biscuits are ‘meaty’. They are not your light and fluffy little light clouds of dough. They hold up to anything and they taste absolutely divine. Buttermilk and butter… oh pinch me.

  • Preheat oven to 450 F.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda into a large bowl.
  • Add the butter cubes. Break up any pieces that stick together. Use your fingers to combine the butter with the flour mixture.
  • Add the buttermilk and stir until a dough forms.
  • Lightly pack the dough with your hands and place onto a lightly floured surface. Use the palms of your hands to flatten out into a 1" thick shape.
  • Use a 2 1/2" biscuit cutter to cut the dough into rounds. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper. Use any remaining dough scraps by pressing them back together with your hands and cutting more biscuits.
  • Brush the tops of the biscuits with the heavy cream and sprinkle generously with the black pepper.
  • Bake until starting to turn golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
