Whether you’ve been gluten free for five years or five days, you know that finding a delicious gluten free biscuit is like finding the perfect Christmas gift for your second cousin. I have been guilty of literally sniffing (almost inhaling) regular biscuits at restaurants because of how much I miss them. Please don’t judge me, I’ve spent four years in a biscuit-less void. So when my sweet grandmother-in-law, “Baba”, sent me biscuit cutters and a Southern Living Cookbook I knew it was time to try to for fluffy, buttery gf biscuits again. And after a weekend of experimentation, I finally found the biscuit recipe my heart desired. Enjoy!
*A quick note – if you are a recipe tweaker, I highly suggest NOT changing anything the first time you try this recipe. Biscuit dough is very sensitive and does not respond well to too much handling or change in ingredients.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Makes: 6 biscuits
And because I care about both your soul and body, here’s one of my favorite running apps. Trust me, once you taste these biscuits you’ll need it.
These bites don’t have any processed sugar or flour, making them perfect for a post run snack! Or…perfect for the chocolate-obsessed who’s doing her best not to eat chocolate cake every day. Either way, you won’t regret making these tiny treats.
Somewhere along the way as our culture broke free from social pressures to entertain and get family dinner on the table by 5pm, we lost the habit of gathering. We let food become fast and convenient, cooking a necessary evil to outsource. It’s funny how that happens with change. We often swing wide in the opposite direction for a while, working so intensely to steer clear of past baggage and mistakes that we lose the goodness that thing had in the first place. The goodness, in this case, being the joy and downright holiness of the kitchen.
