Biscuit is a cookie usually made with butter, milk and baking powder or soda. It can be sweet or savory and always is delicious! We baked a Provolone biscuit that is great for breakfast. You can prepare the day before, freeze and bake in the early morning for your family. Wake up with aroma of cheese and fresh coffee is invigorating!

350g flour
1 tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup finely grated sharp Provolone cheese
100g chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 large egg
150ml buttermilk
3 tsp finely chopped pepper

Preheat the oven to 425˚F.
Sift together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add grated cheese and whisk very well. Rub with your fingertips the butter. Add egg, buttermilk and pepper. Knead just until incorporate. Roll out the dough between two plastics and cut with a round cutter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until is golden brown.

Cook's Tip: Use fresh or dried pepper.

Serve: 15 biscuits
