Cheddar Pepper Biscuits

3 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
3/4 ~ 2 1/2 teaspoons pepper
3/4 cup buttermilk
  1. wisk all dry ingredients
  2. add cheddar cheese
  3. Cut in cold butter
  4. refrigerate dough 30 min
  5. preheat oven to 400
  6. gently stir in buttermilk
  7. gather mixture into a ball
  8. pat into 12 inch disc
  9. cut into 8 pieces
  10. bake 15 to 20 min
NOTES: We did not do step 4 (refrigerate) and we had to add a little more milk to get it to stick together. Becky cut her biscuits into nice little triangles to serve with soup. It makes way more than 8 regular-sized biscuits though.

We used about 2 teaspoons of freshly ground pepper. It was kind of a lot - I'd try a little less next time. A medium grind would be best. (Not too fine, not too coarse.)
