Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour Plus extra for folding
  • 1 cup gluten-free pancake mix flour Already contain xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, very cold cut in small chunks
  • 2 cups Sour cream
  • 4 large eggs, beaten divided (2 eggs for basting)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
    In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. 
  • Add all the wet ingredients and combine well (leave 2 eggs for basting). After mixing the dough, form the dough into a ball. The dough will be somewhat wet, which is okay. Add a little more flour to help handle the dough, but not too much. 
  • Use your hand to shape the ball form dough into a square or rectangle. You may use a rolling pin but do it lightly so you do not overwork the dough. 
  • Use a biscuit cutter (or circular cookie cutter) to cut the dough in even size. 
    Beat the extra eggs and use a small brush to baste the top and sides of the dough. 
  • Place the biscuits on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper that's lightly greased with butter or olive oil spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

Gluten Free Biscuits Tips: 
  • Avoid using a rolling pin, it is best to use your hands to gently work the dough into a flat rectangle before cutting out the biscuits. However, if it is necessary for you to use a rolling pin, do so gently make sure to add a little flour to the rolling pin before applying it to the dough. 
  • Make sure all of the ingredients are as cold as possible. This helps the biscuits become fluffy. 
  • The dough will be messy and somewhat wet and sticky (I actually like it that way). You may add a little gluten-free all-purpose flour as needed, but NOT TOO MUCH. You don’t want the dough to be too tough. 
  • Use a little more flour to help fold the dough. This method is called laminating.
