If you are like us and have spent your days cooking Paleo concoctions that are rich and filling, you may like a change of pace with these fluffy gluten- free biscuits. When the holidays roll around and we see everyone filling themselves with Christmas cookies and pastries, it is hard not to feel left out. But, after a Paleo Thanksgiving, I figured out this recipe, which fills that spot that says, I want a fluffy biscuit with jelly!
After very little grain in our diet, we stayed stuck on these little biscuits. Needless to say, I will keep making them until someone says No more! Try this recipe and see what you think. I have made it with several different gluten free flours I had on hand, but I used my own homemade gluten-free flour mix.
The biscuits melt in your mouth from the first bite, and they are totally delicious!
Fluffy Gluten-Free Biscuits
Add to a mixing bowl the gluten-free flour, baking powder and sea salt. Then add in the softened butter and eggs.
Beat this mixture until you have pea-sized balls forming in the bowl, while you drink a nice cup of hot chocolate.
Add in the buttermilk, or other milk of your choice, while running the mixer, until the dough forms. At this point, begin dreaming of fluffy white biscuits with butter and jelly.
Finally, scoop out spoonfuls of the dough onto a cookie sheet, then press with a cup and shape into circles so they look like this.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes one dozen biscuits.
