Cornmeal Drop Biscuits with Black Pepper
Cornmeal should add flavor and a pleasant corny crunch to biscuits. Could we find the right formula for tasty, tender success?
Why This Recipe Works
A 1:3 ratio of cornmeal to flour gives these easy buttermilk drop biscuits a light texture while retaining the earthy flavor of stone-ground cornmeal. We added sugar to balance the flavor of the cornmeal and a combination of leaveners to keep the biscuits light and tender. Coarsely ground black pepper adds a savory bite to the biscuits.
