One of the first things I missed after my celiac diagnosis was biscuits and gravy. I love it so much, and I thought it was something I would say goodbye to. I mean, you can recreate a lot of glutenous things, but biscuits? Yes, even biscuits can be made delicious gluten free. I spent some time perfecting these, and I can honestly say people don’t know the difference.
These have come especially in handy lately since we suspect our 2 year-old may have celiac disease. And I tell you, keeping a toddler completely gluten free is a chore! I can politely refuse a cookie, but a 2 year-old will just scream that someone else has one and she doesn’t. NOT fun!
Well, in the case of this recipe, the gluten eaters and non-gluten eaters are all satisfied and happy. I hope you like it too!
Gluten Free Kentucky Biscuit Recipe
- 2 cups gluten free flour mixture (see this post for the recipe)
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400°
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut the butter into small cubes and cut into the flour mixture (or if you are like me, dig in with your hands and squish the butter until it resembles sand). Add the milk, stirring to combine.
Dump the ingredients on a greased sheet and smooth with a buttered spatula or wet hands. Cut into 12 evenish squares and bake for 15 minutes (or until lightly browned).
