How to Make Black Pepper Biscuits
- Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse twice to distribute the ingredients evenly. Scatter the butter over the top of the flour mixture and pulse 4-5 times or until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk and pulse until the mixture just begins to come together.
- Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured counter. Pat the dough into a 10 X 12-inch rectangle about 3/4-inch thick. Use a 3-inch round cutter to make 8 biscuits then place them on a prepared baking sheet. Press together the scraps of dough, and repeat process. Place the biscuits on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper; brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with black pepper. Bake the biscuits for 12-15 mintues or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted butter. Optional: grind more pepper onto the tops after applying the butter.
