  3. Stir in shallot, cranberries, walnuts, and pepper. Stir in buttermilk just until dough is moistened. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Turn dough out onto surface and knead 2 or 3 times, just until it comes together. Pat dough into a ½-inch-thick disk.

  5. Pat remaining scraps together and gently press into a biscuit.

  6. Transfer biscuits to a large baking sheet and brush tops with melted butter. Lightly sprinkle biscuits with a few grains of flaky salt and chill for about 10 minutes until firm.

  7. Bake biscuits 20 minutes, or until golden. Let biscuits cool slightly on baking sheet before serving.

  8. Serve and enjoy.
