Recipe from

Southern Living


2 cups self-rising soft-wheat flour
1/4 cup refrigerated shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut up
2/3 cup buttermilk


Combine first 3 ingredients. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly; add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 to 4 times.

Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place on a baking sheet. Reroll and cut trimmings, if necessary, to make 2 dozen.

Bake at 425° for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Note: We used Martha White self-rising soft-wheat flour.
