Mozzarella Black Pepper Biscuit Recipe

I am not sure these are a biscuits, snack or great appetizer. You can make them ahead of time, double the recipe and freeze them for company! They are also great dipped in your favorite sauce.
You can substitute the cheese for a spicier flavor like pepper jack and cheddar if you like. Adapt them anyway you like them they are great!

1 cup whole milk mozzarella shredded (Use any kind of shredded cheese you like)
1/8 cup black pepper
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter cold cut into tiny pieces
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated garlic or use fresh
1 teaspoon Italian herbs either fresh basil and parsley or use dry 

Optional: add chopped pepperoni, ham or cooked sausage, crumbled bacon or prosciutto  ( around 1/2 cup.) Suggested vegetables, chopped tomatoes, peppers, olives or mushrooms.

Mix all the dry ingredients. Coat the butter and the mozzarella with this dry mixture. Gently stir in the milk. Roll out. Cut into biscuits. Top biscuits with meat is using.  Bake in preheated oven 375 degrees  for 25 minutes on a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper.
