I’ve been trying to find the best gluten free dairy free biscuits to make for Hubs and after 6 different attempts…Eureka! Ya’ll, I am so excited about this recipe! Others may claim to be the best, but these are THE BEST. The texture is perfect and the taste is divine. You could serve these up to gluten-eaters and they’d never know the difference. Best of all, these gluten free dairy free biscuits couldn’t be easier!
I was not given payment or samples by any particular brand to create this recipe, but I’m going to tell you exactly what brands I used anyway just because gluten-free cooking can be so persnickety and I want you enjoy the awesomeness of the best gluten free drop biscuits in existence.
Gluten Free Dairy Free Biscuits
1 1/2 cups Cup 4 Cup gluten free flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1 stick butter, chilled*
*This is up for debate. We don’t consider butter dairy since it doesn’t upset Hubs’ tummy. Some paleo diets don’t consider it dairy either. If you do consider it dairy, try butter-flavored shortening or lard instead. You’ll still get a great texture, but might miss the buttery flavor if you go with lard.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Slice chilled butter into 1/2″ slices and place in blender or food processor (I use a Ninja).
Add flour, salt, and baking powder to blender and pulse about 10 times until butter is incorporated.
Place flour mixture into a medium bowl and set aside
In a separate small bowl whisk together egg and water.
Add liquid mixture to solid and stir until just combined
Using a spoon and your hands, form six biscuits onto a Silpat or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-14 minutes (check them at 10 and slice one open. If it’s still a little wet inside bake for another 2-3 minutes. Don’t overcook!)
These are simply the best gluten free dairy free biscuits. Hubs and I ought to know after trying so many recipes and then finally getting it just right.
