Biscuits, baby, biscuits.

I can’t tell you how hard life is without bisquik to make my biscuits quick and perfect, not to mention its other duties as pancakes, coffeecake and dumplings for the chicken gravy.

So. Onward in my quest for the recipe that I will keep on hand for biscuits. This one is a keeper. Oh, there have been several others… that turned out like rocks, or worse gummy rocks…. this one works at last. Ahhhhhh. This is good hot, cold, with jam, or gravy. Yum.

  • 1 C rice flour
  • 1/4 + 1 T palm shortening
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 3/4 C coconut milk
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar

Mix all the dry ingredients together, and cut in the shortening with a fork until it’s all blended. Add the vinegar to the coconut milk and mix in. Golf ball sized dough gently rounded and patted down to a 1/2 inch thickness works great. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes on a parchment paper lined tray.
