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). These were very good!

Easy Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits

2 cups blanched almond flour (or 1-1/2 c. almond flour & 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 350F. 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 350F 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.
