Delightful Chive Biscuits - Gluten Free

IMG_0434.jpg

A Little Background:

I call these little gems delightful, because they are so light, delicious and wonderfully gluten free. With an ever so delicate taste of fresh chive, they add just a taste of buttery goodness to your otherwise wonderful meal. These little biscuits can be made up in a double batch and frozen in little packages to be taken out at any time. I use a flower shaped cookie cutter to make them a uniform shape with a bit of sophistication for elegant dinner parties. It really doesn't take any more time to make them special. I have been making this recipe for several years.  Unfortunately I do not remember exactly where or when I found it, so I can't give or take credit for it, but I do hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as I do. We love them so much, I usually double the recipe and freeze some so they are always on hand.

Time: 13-15 mins

What you will Need:                                                         

  • 1/2 cup potato starch

  • 1/4 cup sorghum flour

  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour

  • 2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt (rounded)

  • 1/2 tsp. white sugar

  • 1 Tablespoon cold butter (from grass fed cows)

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (if avoiding dairy) or use regular whole organic milk

  • 1/4 tsp. Bragg's apple cider vinegar

  • 1 Tablespoon dried chives

How to Make it:

  • Stir all ingredients together with wooden spoon - the dough will be sticky

  • Roll out onto a wooden board or clean counter dusted with your rice or tapioca flour using rolling pin

  • Use any shape cookie cutter to cut into biscuits

  • Place biscuits on a foil lined cookie sheet

  • Bake in a 400F degree oven for 13-15 minutes on the middle rack

  • Begin checking at 12 minutes - you want them only lightly brown, not dark or hard. They should be flaky and cooked. They will cool fast once removed from the cookie sheet

  • If you want them warm for your meal, cover with foil or glass plate.

These biscuits will absolutely melt in your mouth. They freeze well too! Let me know if you enjoy this recipe.  Be fearless & have fun!   - Anita
