Parmesan-Buttermilk Biscuits

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1 biscuit)
You will need to roll the dough out twice to be able to make eight round biscuits. Handle the dough as little as possible to keep it from becoming too tough.

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of ground red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk, divided
  • 3 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through red pepper) in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1/3 cup buttermilk and Parmesan cheese, and stir just until moist.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface; knead lightly 5 times. Roll dough to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon buttermilk. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until golden.
