“Cheater” Gluten Free Biscuits
I call these “cheater” biscuits because they’re SO much easier to make than regular biscuits!
There’s no kneading, no layering, no worrying about “getting them just right.” You can whip up a batch in minutes, pour them in a muffin tin, pop ’em in the oven, and you’re good to go!
Essentially, it’s like baking a batch of muffins, with the flavor of biscuits. And without the tummy-ache from wheat-based recipes. Score!
I moved to the south just over a decade ago, so the obsession with biscuits around here is still a bit new to me. Growing up in West Virginia it was all about cornbread! Perhaps that’s why I love these gluten free biscuits so much — they are kind of like a cross between the two!
Since we used brown sugar and upped the amount (versus a traditional biscuit recipe) our gluten free biscuits have that subtly sweet essence of cornbread (even though there’s not a speck of corn in them). But oh, what a treat with a pat of butter!
