B is for ... Biscuits!

I made biscuits a couple weeks ago. We were having stew, and it just seemed to call for some biscuits. I found a recipe on the internet, and after tweaking it a little bit, this is what I used:


1/2 c. white rice flour or white sorghum flour
1/4 c. potato starch
1/4 c. tapioca starch
1 tsp. sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. buttermilk

Heat oven to 450F. PAM the baking sheet. Mix dry ingredients. Cut butter in until it resembles small peas. Stir in milk to form a soft dough that holds it's shape when it's pressed together. (You might not need all the milk.) Place mixture onto wax paper on the counter. Place another sheet of wax paper on top. Roll to 1" thickness. Remove wax paper, cut into 8 or 9 round 2" biscuits. Gently shape scraps into 2" circles.

Bake 10-12 min. until lightly browned.

Aren't they pretty? :) And, they were flaky and delicious just like they should be.

I also used the biscuit recipe to top a chicken pot pie. It was good, too! The biscuit topping was a little tougher than the biscuits were, but it was still delicious.
