Delightful Drop Biscuits

Do you need a gluten-free biscuit recipe? These biscuits are easy to make, taste delicious, and the texture is heavenly.

Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits

3/4 c. sorghum flour
1/2 c. tapioca starch
1/2 c. corn starch
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. cream of tartar
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tb. sugar

1/4 c. butter, softened
1 large egg
3/4 c. milk

Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. In your mixer bowl, combine the butter, egg and milk. Add the dry ingredients and beat on high about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and make sure it is mixed well.

Spray a large spoon (serving spoon) with cooking spray and drop the dough by spoonfuls onto a sprayed cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees about 12 minutes until golden brown. Brush with melted butter.

You can take a little more time to make these look nice by smoothing them with the back of the spoon, or try using an ice cream scoop to drop them onto the cookie sheet. As you can see, mine aren't the most attractive because I wanted to get them in the oven. No one cared how they looked, but everyone loved the taste and texture. They are not flaky, but they are very soft. Trust me, you'll love them.

I'm definitely going to try these biscuits! I've been using Bob's Red Mill wheat free biscuit mix and it leaves a terrible gritty aftertaste...thanks for posting it!
I've been looking for a tried and true biscuit recipe. Thanks for posting this. I can't wait to try mouth is watering.
I just made these for supper to go with our pot roast and they were great. Thanks.
These are great!!! I've been making them for some time now...they are a staple in my house!! Would you be ok with me posting the link to this recipe and posting the changes I made? My guy is egg & mostly corn free so I had to make necessary adjustments. Thanks sooo much for sharing!!!
I'm glad other people are enjoying this recipe and that it works well with modifications. Please feel free to post your version of the recipe and just give a link to me. Thanks.
I love these! Just tried them, baked them in muffin tins instead of on a sheet pan and they came out light and fluffy, perfect for breakfast. Want to experiment to make corn muffins from them. :)

I've tried a -lot- of GF/CF biscuit recipes, and this is one of the best. My son told me, "This one's a keeper, Mom!" Thanks!
These are great! It's the first good bread I've had in forever! I ended up eating three of them they were so good.
I've made these in the past, and am making them again for supper tonight. To me, they have the taste & texture of a bun, I thought. A nice quick bun recipe to dip in my tomato soup tonight. :) Thanks, Linda!
