Servings: 6 biscuits
Author: DishingDelish.com
  • 2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour (cup-for-cup) plus extra to flour working surface
  • 1 tbsp double acting baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter chilled
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk cold
  • extra buttermilk to brush tops of biscuits
  1. Pre-heat oven to 425F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.

  2. In a food processor, add gluten free flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Pulse a few times to mix everything together. 

  3. Cut cold butter into small pieces and add to food processor. Pulse again until butter is mixed into flour. Continue to pulse while slowly adding buttermilk. 

  4. As you pulse the food processor, dough should turn into a big dough ball. Once it does, immediately remove from food processor and place on a floured surface. Don't overwork the dough here, watch the food processor closely!

  5. Using your you hands and a rolling pin, work dough into a ball and flatten it on surface. Fold the right side to the middle, then the left side over that. Flatten it gently again, and repeat the folding. Be really gentle with the dough here!

  6. Using a round biscuit cutter, cut biscuits about 1-inch thick each. Re-work dough until all is used up. Place biscuits on baking sheet, just touching each other. 

  7. Brush tops of biscuits with extra buttermilk. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until biscuits are done.
