Asiago-Black Pepper Drop Biscuits

Asiago-Black Pepper Drop Biscuits

These savory biscuits are incredibly easy to make, as there's no need to roll or cut out the dough. If the batter seems too thick, you can add another tablespoon of fat-free buttermilk.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 biscuit)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 5 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cheese; toss well to combine. Add buttermilk; stir just until moist.
