I have been craving a soft, buttery, fluffy biscuit ever since my celiac diagnosis. I LOVE bread. I LOVE carbs, and especially the breakfast variety… AKA BISCUITS. So I have been on the hunt for Gluten Free Biscuits, testing several recipes and flours and tweaking them as I went along to find the recipe that finally created the flavor and texture I was hoping to find. AND I FOUND IT.

Ingredients – Gluten Free Biscuits
1 cup high quality gluten free flour- I suggest Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour.
1/2 T gluten free baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons Grass Fed Beef Tallow at Room Temperature – I suggest the Epic brand
Instructions – Gluten Free Biscuits
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a small bowl, whisk together gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt.
Using a pastry dough cutter, cut in the beef tallow until it starts to form small crumbled balls within the dry mixture
Add cream while stirring with a spoon, just until everything is combined, the use your hands to combine and squish everything into one big ball. Dough should be sticky.
Sprinkle a small amount 1/2 T – 1 T) of gluten free flour onto a baking mat, parchment, or wax paper. Scoop 1/4 of biscuit dough onto the floured surface, scoop another 1/4 of the dough on top and gently press down, and continue with remaining dough. Don’t work the dough, simply pat down each piece on top so that you end up with a round of dough about 1″ thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits and place them on a baking sheet.
Gently brush the biscuits with a little cream. I used a pastry brush and whatever cream is left in the measuring cup
Bake for 12-15 minutes (14 minutes is perfect in my oven) until the tops are a golden brown and biscuits are done inside. Be careful not to over bake them.
Remove from oven, top with your favorite butter + jam and dig in and enjoy your gluten free biscuits!
