Denise's Perfect Gluten-Free Biscuits



After going gluten-free over two years ago I have struggled in the bread baking department. Gluten-Free baking is NOT like regular baking.  You practically have to be some kind of mad-scientist chemist sort of person to be able to successfully recreate regular bread recipes into gluten-free recipes successfully.  If you've been there then you know how real the struggle is.  Can I get an amen?

The good news is I have FINALLY come up with a gluten-free flour blend that seems to be working well for my baking needs and I have create this beyond delicious biscuit recipe that even my gluten-eating husband loves.  SCORE!!





So, here we go let's make some gluten-free biscuits:

First, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, xanthan gum  and baking powder in a bowl.  Whisk those together to combine.  Now, add the SOLID coconut oil and use a pastry cutter to cut in the oil to the flour mixture.  Next, add the apple cider vinegar and honey and about half of the water.  Mix well.   Continue to add and stir in the remaining water until the mixture is well combined and becomes a soft dough.



Use an ice cream scoop to grab some dough.  We are making 12 biscuits so don't grab too much.  Have a small bowl of gluten-free all purpose flour handy and drop the dough into the bowl.  Lightly coat the outside of the dough with the flour and use your hands to GENTLY shape the biscuit in to a round ball.


Continue with each dough ball and place them in a small greased baking dish.  


Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.  This isn't a yeast bread but it does help to let the dough rest before baking it.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake about 15-20 minutes or until they are risen nicely and are a light golden color.  



Serve hot with butter, jelly, honey or your favorite fillings.  The also make excellent bacon-egg biscuits for breakfast!
