Gluten-Free Biscuits

Amazingly, I am getting another post out less than 24 hours after my last one. I know, very unusual for me, but I had something turn out so well that I have to post this recipe for all my gluten-free friends!

I discovered this recipe for gluten-free buttermilk biscuits today and decided to make it with dinner tonight. I followed the recipe as written. I used Jules All Purpose Gluten Free Flour for the flour blend, and I used shortening where there was a choice of leaf lard or shortening. I also added a tablespoon or two of buttermilk because the dough seemed too crumbly. The only other thing I did differently was I brushed the tops of the biscuits with melted butter when they had about five minutes left to bake instead of brushing the tops with egg yolk/milk mixture.

I didn't take pictures of the process because I wasn't thinking I would blog about these, but it was simple. Just be sure to use cold butter and shortening, cut them into the flour mixture until pea size clumps form, and only mix the buttermilk in until the dough holds together. And by the way, I used Jules flour mix instead of tapioca flour where the recipe calls for it to coat the rolling surface, rolling pin and biscuit cutter.

Once I got the biscuits out of the oven I couldn't get my iPhone quickly enough to snap a picture of these beauties.
Lovely, huh? Bet your mouth is watering.....but just wait....
I cannot say enough how good these biscuits are. My non-gluten free husband agreed. Bake them and let me know what you think! Thank you, Jeanne from Art of Gluten-Free Baking!

    1. You can buy it online here http://www.julesglutenfree.com/product-p/flour-1x5.htm
      I don't know of any retails stores that carry it. Or you can make your own flour blend as mentioned in the biscuit recipe at
