Black Pepper Rings

"For Italian families, pepper rings are a type of biscuit eaten in place of bread. In our family, they are traditionally served at Easter, but are delicious any time of year. They taste extra special if heated before serving. Try them with black coffee or espresso."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil over medium-high heat. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Stir in melted butter and oil. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, pepper and baking powder.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture. Mix until dough pulls together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 8 inch long cylinder. Bend each cylinder into a ring shape and pinch ends together. With a sharp knife, score each ring around its outside edge.
  4. Drop rings two at a time into boiling water and boil for 1 minute. Remove rings from water and place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown.

The good news is that these taste pretty darned good, for a fairly simple biscuit. Slightly eggy, nice and peppery, big and fairly dense. They definitely taste better warmed, though I didn't try...

The dough came out so wet and gooey that you could not form anything. I even tried to add more flour to make the dough more durable and nothing worked.

Excellent makes a great substitute for bread. An Italian bagel.
