  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Pastry cutter or fork
  • Sheet pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Rolling Pin
  • Biscuit cutter
  • Silicone brush



  • 2 cups GF flour see below
  • 6 TBSP grass fed butter cubed and cold⠀
  • ¾ TBSP milk I used unsweetened almond milk⠀
  • 1 tsp xantham gun omit if the flour you use has it⠀
  • 1 tsp sea salt⠀
  • 1 tsp baking powder ⠀
  • ½ tsp baking soda⠀
  • ½ tsp garlic powder⠀
  • 1 TBSP fresh minced or 1 tsp dried parsley and rosemary⠀
  • 1 TBSP grass fed butter + 1/2 TBSP milk⠀

Flour Blend

  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum


  • In a bowl mix together all the dry ingredients. ⠀
  • Add in cubed butter and mix in with two forks or a pastry cutter until you have coarse crumbs. ⠀
  • Mix in 3/4 cup of milk and combine. If the dough looks dry add a tablespoon of milk to moisten. ⠀
  • Put the dough on a floured surface and form a rectangle. Fold into thirds then flatten into a rectangle that’s about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick. ⠀
  • With a 2-2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter cut the dough and place biscuits on a prepared sheet pan. ⠀
  • Re-roll scraps as needed to make more. You can make them as thick or thin as you like. The dough makes 10-12 thin and 6 thick. ⠀
  • Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. When ready to bake preheat the oven to 425. ⠀
  • Brush the top of the biscuits with butter and milk. Bake for 15 minutes if thin or 20 minutes of thick.
  • Once done baking brush more melted butter and serve.


This is easy to make dairy free or vegan by using ghee or coconut oil. They may come out more like drop biscuits but still delicious.
Don’t skip the xanthan gum. I tried making this without it and it makes a big difference.
When cubing the butter and rolling the dough either run your hands under cold water or have a bowl of ice water nearby to cool your hands down. Your hands are naturally warm and could melt the butter.
