Parmesan Peppercorn Biscuits

Prep Time50 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Course: Appetizer, Side Dish
Servings: 12 biscuits
Calories: 146kcal


  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend contains it)
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoons fresh coarsely ground black pepper
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter cubed and very cold
  • ¾ cup + 1 tablespoon cold buttermilk divided


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Combine the dry ingredients and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl and whisk together. Add the cubed butter and cut in with a pastry cutter or two forks until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in ¾ cup buttermilk and mix until just combined.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat into a rectangle. Fold the rectangle into thirds and turn the dough a half turn. Flatten into a rectangle until the dough is about ½- to ¾-inch thick.
  • Cut the dough with a 2½-inch biscuit cutter and place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Re-roll the dough as needed; there should be about 12 biscuits.
  • Refrigerate the biscuits at least 30 minutes to ensure the butter stays cold. This is especially important if your house/kitchen is warm and humid.
  • Brush the tops of the biscuits with the remaining buttermilk. Sprinkle the tops of the biscuits with additional Parmesan cheese and cracked black pepper, if desired.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are browned and baked through.
