    BeckyCherwak's Note:

    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!

      Delicious! I didn't use the cast iron skillet since I couldn't find mine, but they came out great nonetheless. I made these for biscuits and gravy #73827

      Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag. These were pretty good and a nice change from the biscuits I make from Pamela's Pancake and Baking Mix. I'm not sure how often I'll make them, but much would depend on time factors but that's beside the point. These were pretty good and I appreciate Becky posting this recipe!
