Roben Ryberg's Biscuits (Gluten-Free)

This recipe is a sampling from a new cookbook tentatively titled The Gluten-Free Baker by Roben Ryberg, scheduled for publication in the spring of 1999.

Roben Ryberg: This dough is great fun to work with. My kids like to play with the scraps. This dough is quite soft, and so are the biscuits.

Ingredients:

Ads by Google:

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

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 . In medium bowl, blend all ingredients. 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.

Makes 6-8 large biscuits.

We tried these biscuits with strawberries and whipped cream. The results were amazing.

I thought they tasted strange, but my gluten intolerant kids loved them, so I guess they will be made again. Think they would taste great with berries, kids liked it with the stew I made. Will make again.

I have made this recipe several times recently, but I make one change. I substitute 1 - 1 1/4 cups of whipping cream for the milk and shortening that is called for in the original recipe. Makes a tender and delicious biscuit.

I've been looking for a good pastry recipe to go with stew and this recipe definitely delivered. It has been two years since i have made this dish because I had no gluten-free pastry that did not fall flat or taste gritty. Thank you Robyn! Even my husband thought it was great.

you're lucky you dont catch colds. im the opposite i catch everything very easily and get alot sicker than whoever i caught it from and take much longer to get better.

Even one positive can be diagnostic. This is one: Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9. If unsure, a biopsy of the small intestine will provide definite confirmation. There is a control test to validate the other ones, but I don't see it there. What is does is validate the others by checking on the overall antibody levels. But it is to detect possible false negatives. A positive is a positive. I think your daughter has joined our club.

My daughter, almost 7 years old, recently had a lot of blood work done, her Dr is out of the office, but another Dr in the practice said everything looked normal. I'm waiting for her Dr to come back and see what she thinks. I'm concerned because there is one abnormal result and I can't find info to tell me if just that one test being abnormal means anything. The reason for the blood work is mainly because of her poor growth, though she does have some other symptoms. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200 CRP <2.9 same as reference range Gliadin Deamidated Peptide IgA .4 Reference range <=14.9 Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9 Reference range <=14.9 TTG IgA .5 Reference range <=14.9 TTG IgG <.8 Reference range <=14.9

Just watch out. I just went to the expo in Schaumburg, IL, and ended up getting glutened. I realized afterward that I ate all these samples thinking they were gluten free, and they weren't. One company was advertising some sugar, and had made some cake, but then I realized.... How do I know if this contains any other ingredients that might have gluten? Did they make it with a blender or utensils that had gluten contamination? Makes me realize the only safe things would be packaged giveaways with gluten free labeling. My fault for not thinking things through. It was just too exciting thinking i could try it all and enjoy without worry.

No fasting required for a celiac blood test unless they were checking your blood glucose levels during the same blood draw.
