They are delicious with the parmesan cheese but for a basic buttermilk drop biscuit, simply leave out the cheese and pepper.
Parmesan Cracked Pepper Drop Biscuits
2 cups flour (white flour, whole wheat, or a mixture of the two)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper (I did about 50 cracks on my pepper mill)
1 cup buttermilk*
3-5 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil (less oil for a 'lower fat' biscuit)
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (please, do not use the canister stuff!)
*If you wish not want to use buttermilk, simply switch to regular milk and eliminate the baking soda.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and oil.
Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Add the cheese and stir just until combined.
"Drop" by heaping tablespoons on to a cookie sheet pan. (I like to use a large cookie scoop.)
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.
Makes about 12 biscuits.
