“Buttermilk” Drop Biscuits

18 Mar

A friend of mine shared this recipe from “The Gluten-free Gourmet Cooks Comfort Foods” and I just made it dairy free. I was skeptical, I’ll admit, but they came out of the oven fluffy and delicious. Her recipe instructs you to roll the dough out and cut it using biscuit cutters, but it’s really nowhere near solid enough for that. They’re more “drop” biscuits than anything. This recipe makes 8, and requires the “featherlight” flour blend that the  original recipe calls for and I’ve included at the end. It’s very simple, so don’t be turned off by that. They taste amazing, and you can easily substitute an egg for the xanthan gum, if you prefer. So go ahead and make biscuits and gravy, or strawberry shortcakes, or whatever strikes your fancy. This recipe will exceed your expectations.

“Buttermilk” Drop Biscuits

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

Mix:

7/8 cup Featherlight Mix

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

Cut in using two knives or a pastry blender:

3 Tbsp shortening (you could probably use coconut oil, but I haven’t tried it)

Mix in a half cup measure, let sit a minute and then stir in to dry ingredients:

1 1/2 tsp vinegar, lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar

Enough almond milk to fill the 1/2 c. measure

Once it forms into a ball, drop 8 biscuits onto a pan lined with parchment paper

Bake for 10-12 minutes

Featherlight Flour Mix

1 c. cornstarch

1 c. brown or white rice flour (I used brown, she called for white)

1 c. tapioca starch

1 Tbsp potato flour
