- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/ 4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 1/ 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1/ 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/ 4 pound unsalted butter, frozen
- 1 3/ 4 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine flour, cheese, baking powder, pepper, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl.
Grate butter using the large holes of a box grater. Stir into the flour mixture. Add buttermilk stirring just until a soft dough begins to form.
Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3 times until it comes together. Pat or roll the dough into a 1 to 1 1/4-inch thick round.
Cut dough, using a floured 21/2-inch biscuit cutter into rounds, re-rolling scrapes once. Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Remove biscuits from freezer. Bake at 450°F until golden brown, about 15 to 18 minutes. Serve warm.
