Easy Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits

I tried this recipe from the Gourmet Girl Cooks blog, replacing some of the almond flour with the FF mix (my changes noted in italics).

(I posted this in the Fantastic Flour Mix sticky thread as well. These were really good - I wanted to bring the recipe to everyone's attention.)

Easy Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits

2 cups blanched almond flour (or 1-1/2 c. almond flour & ½ c. FF mix)
3 tablespoons cold butter, diced
1 egg (or 1/4 cup Egg Beaters) (use 2 eggs when using FF mix), beaten
1 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 - 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
2 teaspoons baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

In a food processor, add almond flour, FF mix, salt, black pepper, baking powder; pulse to mix. Add butter and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, pulse until crumbly and all flour is slightly moistened and cheese is pulverized into the mixture. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Stir in cream, eggs, and remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese; mix in lightly. Divide and roll dough into 10 to 12 balls (I used lg. cookie scoop – it made 15) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet; do not flatten dough balls (this will result in a thicker biscuit). Bake at 350ºF for approximately 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown; be careful not to overcook. Remove from oven; brush tops with melted butter, if desired.

Thanks for your review!
I've been tempted to try this recipe, but have been burned by too many bad recipes (not hers, just in general). She seems to rely quite a bit on this recipe on her blog for many things. Looking forward to trying it.

I'll have to stick to the original recipe.

Was just noting that you have had some less than wonderful experiences
with baking LC. I think that we all have.
KC Soccermom has posted
very reliable recipes. She always cooks them before posting.
When I do make them, I shall report my thoughts.

Thanks, Barbo! I truly appreciate recipes that are posted that are tried and true and not just from a blog (although there are quite a few blogs that I do trust) or elsewhere.
I know KC Soccermom from another "food" board, so trust her comments.

I'm bumping this old thread because I hadn't made these in a while and had forgotten how good they are!

DH and I went on a Kansas City Caffeine crawl yesterday (lots of fun - I'm still buzzing from the caffeine ) I wanted to bring along something LC so we wouldn't be so tempted to eat the baked treats along the way. I added 1/4 cup bacon crumbles to the batter (I used Costco's bacon bits, but you could crumbled your own). I also cut the original recipe in half since it was for the two of us - made 8 biscuits. Here's what I used:

3/4 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 Fantastic Flour Mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1 1/2 tablespoons cold butter, diced
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 cup bacon bits

These are like bacon-cheddar scones. They would make great breakfast sandwiches with an egg, too.
