I made fresh mozzarella from raw milk today and didn’t want to waste the whey. I decided to try the Cheese Whey Biscuits. After making the mozzarella, I then decided to try and make ricotta. It went okay except my thermometer wouldn’t work right. I had to guess when the ricotta was finished. I saved some of the whey to make these Cheese Whey Biscuits. I thought they tasted good.
CHEESE WHEY BISCUITS
2˝ cups flour
1 cup whey
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
˝ teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup Parmesan or cheddar cheese, grated
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter. Add whey and mix lightly just until combined. Add cheese.
Drop on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheets. Best when served hot. Serves 10.
I also reserved some whey to make pizza dough. I replaced the water with the whey. The dough is cold fermenting. Wonder how that dough is going to turn out?
The last two pictures are of the ricotta.
