Baking Powder Biscuits

Biscuits have always intimidated me. I only ever made the Bisquick kind or popped open a can before needing to bake gluten free. I somehow thought they were difficult to make. Wow, I was wrong. They're not the super fluffy, roll them out and cut them with a biscuit cutter kind, but they're delicious with soup, eggs, smothered in sausage gravy, slathered in jam or plain. Add a little extra sugar to the dough and sprinkle more on top and they could easily become shortcakes.

Mmm.. biscuits


Baking Powder Biscuits
2c gluten free flour
1T baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp sugar
6T cold butter, cubed
1/2 - 3/4c milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and then cut in butter until pea sized lumps remain. Stir in milk, starting at 1/2c, until a sticky dough forms. Using a muffin scoop or ice cream scoop, gently form 8 discs. Place on baking sheet and bake for 18-20 minutes. Serve warm.
