Fennel-Pepper Biscuits


I made some fennel-pepper biscuits tonight to go with my acquacotta for our Feast of Befana. 

4 C white whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
1 t pink Himalaya salt
4 eggs
1/4 C fennel seeds
1 T coarse ground black pepper
1/2 C olive oil
1/2 C warm water

Mix all dry ingredients. Make a well. Add eggs, oil. and warm water to the mixture. Pour into flour mixture. Mix well. Knead dough. Form into bicsuits, plaing them in a buttered pan. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.
 
Traditionally these biscuits are served with a homemade grape jelly; I didn't have time to make grape jelly, so we used some strawberry jelly that I had on-hand.
