Italian Pepper Biscuits

Italian Pepper Biscuits

I like savory biscuit then sweet I have said this before rite? And when the recipe is like so simple then nothing can hold me back from trying it.  This biscuit is again very easy like Wheat Almond Cookie, tasted much better than I expected.  It's crunchy with lot of flakes and the pepper, herbs add such wonderful flavor, each bite is just so yum.  I really loved it the fact that it's very flaky and smell so good, everyone if you open the box you are storing these biscuit you will get hit with this amazing pepper and herbs fragrance.



I just happen to find this recipe while I was looking for something else, it's keeper for me and am sure if you try you won't be disappointed too.



Makes 18 pieces
Ingredients:
Adapted from Foodblogga

Plain Flour - 1 Cup
Crushed Peppercorn - 1/2 tsp [fresh is better]
Italian Herbs - 1/2 tsp
Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - a pinch
Olive Oil - 1/4 Cup
Salt - to taste [ 1/4 tsp heaped I used]
Water - 1/4 Cup + 1 tsp OR as needed



Method:

1. Preheat oven to 375F or 180C.  Sieve baking powder, soda and flour, add freshly crushed pepper corn, herbs, fennel seeds, salt and mix well.  



2. Add oil in 2 batches and mix with flour, rub between hands to get sand like texture.  Adjust salt and spices if required.



3. Add water in small quantity with flour mixture and make a soft dough.
~ I used 1/4 Cup and then added 1tsp of water again to bring all the flour together so you have to add water in small quantity, make sure the dough is not sticky but smooth, if not add 1 tbsp of flour and mix again.

4. Divide the dough into equal portion.  Roll the dough between floured or oiled hands and make it into cigar shape.  


5. Form a U shape, then criss-cross the pieces until a braid forms as shown in the picture.  Place each piece an inch apart on a baking tray lined with greased cookie sheet.
~ Or use roll the dough and use your cookie cutter to give any desire shape



6. Bake for 40 minutes or until the biscuit is golden brown, after 20 minutes flip the biscuits.  Cool on a wire rack and store in air tight container.

This is what happens if a hungry soul takes pictures,  I drank half of tea and ate few biscuit by the time I finished clicking :D



Note:
~You can also brush the top of biscuits with egg wash  before you bake it, I didn't do that.
~ You can reduce the pepper to 1/4 tsp if you think 1/2 is too spicy for you.

It makes a very good tea time snack.  And sending this to Only Bake Event by Tamalapaku and a event started by Food delicious.
