    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from Fiddle-Faddle in the Gluten-Free Forum. This is an adaptation of Robyn Ryberg's biscuits, found here on celiac.com.

    Ingredients:
    1/3 cup shortening
    ½ cup potato starch
    ¾ cup cornstarch
    1 ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon sugar
    ¾ cup milk
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    ¼ cup butter, softened (optional--makes a very fattening biscuit!)
    **********************************
    Another ¼ cup butter, melted, mixed with ¼ - ½ teaspoon garlic powder

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 375F. In medium bowl, blend all ingredients except for last two. Mix very well to remove any lumps. Dough will be quite soft and a bit sticky. Roll or pat our dough on a lightly floured (cornstarch) surface. Dough should be about ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½ inch cookie cutters. An inverted glass will also do the job. Place biscuits on lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. As soon as they come out of the oven, brush with melted butter/garlic combination.

    Makes 6-8 large biscuits.

    In the recipe instructions, when do you add in the last two ingredients? After mixing everything else? Clarify this and it would be an awesome recipe!

    I used bacon grease from the day before.. it was about, I dunno 1/3 cup? I didn't measure, Lowered the butter to 2 Tblsn, baked @ 375 for about 15 mins, let em sit in the oven till the tops were golden. And I tell you what, these are amazing!!!!

    I made these last week and they were delicious. Then we went Red Lobster and I tried a bite of theirs and I decided I like the gluten free biscuits better. I also modified and used garbanzo flour, as I am trying to limit corn intake.

    I haven't tried this recipe yet (I am going to Red Lobster today though, and plan on making them to take with me, though!), but I thought I'd share the "secret" to making them taste more like the real thing. after they come out of the oven, ever so lightly sprinkle the tops with LEMON JUICE! Before my family went gluten-free, we were kind of red lobster aficionados, and I made my glutenous version at home, and the lemon juice adds that last step that most copy-cat recipes leave out. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    Oh my goodness! Praise God for this recipe. I was so upset tonight because we were going to Red Lobster and I knew I couldn't have their biscuits. I made these in under 20 minutes and they are FANTASTIC. I am bringing them with me to Red lobster so I won't feel so left out. THANK YOU!!!!!!

    I made these a couple of weeks ago and they didn't even last 2 hours in our house! I am gluten-free but my husband and kids are not and they even LOVED them!! I did not roll them out, I dropped spoon fulls onto the cookie tray and they turned out perfect. The next time I make them I will be making a double batch!

    According to the manager at the Red Lobster we went to, their biscuits ARE gluten-free, but they wouldn't tell me what they use instead of flour. They said they use a biscuit mix, cheese and butter to make theirs and if it says it's gluten-free, then it is gluten-free. I tempted fate and tried them and have not had a reaction yet, but that was just last night.

    FYI- I just replied about Red Lobster's menu saying the cheddar biscuits were gluten-free. The menu they gave me said it was (I checked multiple times and had my husband check too) but the gluten-free menu online says they are not gluten-free. Maybe they are trying a different recipe at that particular location.

    Thank you all for your comments I love the biscuits from red lobster but can't eat them whenever we go there. Now I will bake me some and bring with me when we go again.

    Please tell me what the ¼ measurement means.  Since the Â appears throughout this recipe I guess it means approximately, but it appears so much it seems to be a lot of guesswork to get it right.  This ~ means approximately in my language/math training.  I have no reference to understand the Â symbol.

    I miss biscuits more thananything. Before going gluten-free, I loved to eat biscuits andgravy, strawberry shortcake (on homemade biscuits) and warm biscuitswith honey! There is nothing that compares with the satisfaction ofeating a warm homemade biscuit. Which is why the following recipe isso exciting. This is a recipe that can be manipulated to cater tospecific dietary restrictions-even mine! There are dairy-free,soy-free and egg-free options included. It might take a couple triesfinding the right combination for you, so spend a day making somedelicious gluten-free home-style biscuits.
