If you are looking for a light and flavorful bread to serve with a bowl of soup or a light salad, this is a great recipe to keep handy. The Asiago cheese adds just the right amount of richness to these biscuits while the generous amount of pepper adds a bit of a bite.
These savory drop biscuits are easy to make because you do not have to roll or cut the dough, you simply drop tablespoons of the dough onto a baking sheet and they are ready to bake. If you prefer a bit more salt, sprinkle Kosher salt or sea salt on the tops of the biscuits before baking. Enjoy!!
1-1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1-1/2 TB Butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup Fresh Asiago Cheese, grated
3/4 cup Fat-Free Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and stir. Cut in butter with a pastry blender (or use 2 butter knives) until the mixture is a crumbly texture.
Add the cheese and toss well to combine, then add the buttermilk and stir just until moist.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and drop dough into 8 equal mounds. Bake for 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
