How to make Pepperjack and Ramp “Buttermilk” Biscuits
Makes roughly 7 biscuits and takes about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Prepare buttermilk according to the recipe above.
In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp sea salt
Once dry is mixed together add
- 4 Tbsp plant based butter.
Break apart the butter in the flour mixture with your fingers until pea-sized. Lightly crumble the butter, do not smush it.
Add buttermilk mixture slowly and fold in with your hands or wooden spoon until a shaggy dough starts to form. Note: you may not need to use all of the buttermilk, only use enough until the dough is slightly tacky to the touch.
At this point you will add any chopped/shredded plant based cheese or flavorings to your biscuit. We used 1/2 cup PMA Foods pepper jack cheese and 1/2 cup fresh foraged ramps. You can substitute chives or scallions. We prefer PMA Foods (local) or Good Planet for our recipe. You can use any flavor cheese you’d like.
Continue kneading lightly until loose dough ball forms.
Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Heat oven to 450F. Make sure oven is at temp before starting this next step.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface.
Roll out dough until about 1/2 inch thick, adding flour lightly as needed to prevent sticking. Fold dough over itself, flip, and fold again. Working quickly, Lightly roll dough out again this time to 3/4 inch thick. Repeat folding. This time roll dough out to about 1 inch thick. This folding will give you those beautiful flaky layers. If you want a solid biscuit do not fold and roll out to 1 inch and go from there.
Use a biscuit cutter or a cup to cut out circles. Place on baking sheet about 1.5 inches apart. Brush tops with plant-based milk. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how golden you like them. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and enjoy. 😽
