The Best Gluten Free Biscuits

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by BeckyCherwak

I tried many gluten free recipes for biscuits. They were either crumbly, or lacked any flavor. I then went back through older recipes, and converted my "good ol'" biscuit recipe to a gluten free one. I use them for sausage gravy, chicken 'n' biscuits, shortcakes and even breakfast sandwiches. Everyone who has tried them, loves them.

I wish I could say that I did something wrong with these but I read and reread the recipe to be sure when, by following the recipe, my biscuit dough was more like a pancake mix and there would have been no way the cut it into a shape. As I was depending on this as part of my lunch plan for 3 hungry little munchkins, I tried to salvage it by adding enough flour (a little at a time) to make it cuttable. I more than doubled the flour to get it to this point. By the way I started making these biscuits around 12:30, took them out of the oven around 1:50, and served cereal for lunch shortly thereafter. What a disappointment!
