Parmesan Sesame Biscuits

Circle B Kitchen

I make these biscuit ALL of the time. They're our favorite and for good reason... lots of flavor, great texture, and they come together in minutes. If you think you can't make biscuits, think again. It doesn't get much easier than this.

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 tsp cayenne powder (optional)

2 tablespoons butter

3/4 cup grated parmesan

3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

1 1/2 tablespoons lightly toasted sesame seeds

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and the cayenne, if using.

Cut in the butter until it creates little pebbles in the flour (food processor works great for this).

Add the cheese and sesame seeds and then stir in the buttermilk.

Stir until the mixture forms a dough and then knead 6 times on a floured board.

Pat the dough out to about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick, and cut using a 2 -inch biscuit cutter. Arrange the biscuits in 2 8 or 9-inch cake pans, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cast iron skillets work great for this too.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Makes 10-12 biscuits.
