Biscuits

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recipe for or know of a mix that is not sickly sweet? Daughter also can not have soy, dairy or eggs.

So far all of the ones I've tried have an odd, sweet taste to them, kind of like shortbread. Or they just won't hold together. I used one mix for drop biscuits and they just went to crumbs when I tried to get them off the cookie sheet. Odd mouthfeel to them too. Gritty and sort of just exploded in the mouth.

Daughter used to love a casserole I made that was a chicken and vegetable stew topped with biscuits. Would like to make something similar but so far no luck.

I use this recipe for biscuit topping and for chicken and dumplings.

2 C Gluten Free flour mix *(see below)

1 Tbs Baking Powder

1-1/2 tsp salt

1/3 C Spectrum Organic Shortening

3/4-1 C Rice milk

Stir baking powder and salt into flour. Cut shortening in with a pastry blender until very well mixed (no big lumps left). Stir in milk with a spoon and stir until smooth. If you're going to roll them out, use 3/4 C milk (maybe a bit more). If you're going to make drop biscuits, use 1 C milk.

For plain biscuits, bake at 400 for 10 minutes.

*Gluten Free Flour Mix

3 C Brown Rice Flour (or combo of rice and sorghum)

1 C Potato Starch

1/2 C Tapioca Starch

2-1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

Sift together 3 times! (Very important.)

Thanks! I will try that one.
