Upgrade Your Biscuits by Treating Them Like This Classic Pasta Dish

Lately I’ve been noticing a curious new trend: cacio e pepe everything. Chefs are making cacio e pepe pizza and polenta and risotto. Now you might say, “Hang on, by that logic couldn’t you call anything with freshly ground black pepper and hard sheep’s milk cheese cacio e pepe-flavored?”

Yum! Biscuits made with cheese and pepper are awesome for egg sandwiches. I like to use the King Arthur flour “2-ingredient” biscuit base for mine. It sounds crazy but it works. All you do is take self-rising flour and add in heavy cream, stir, and it makes amazing biscuit dough. Add in pepper and shredded cheese and you can have biscuits in under 20 minutes from start to finish. They are quite heavy though with the cream and the cheese so I wouldn’t eat them all the time.
