Gluten-Free Biscuits

I don’t normally post recipes on my blog. This is the first one, as a matter of fact. I know many people are eating gluten free and thought some might find this of interest.

On Pinterest, I ran across a Seven-Up recipe for biscuits. I tried it with gluten-free Bisquick, and it was good but the biscuits were heavy and sweet. I decided to tweak the recipe. I do not have the exact amounts of each ingredients, but this is what I used, plus sour cream:

I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and melted about two tablespoons of Smart Balance in a iron skillet. I mixed together about six ounces of sour cream and about a fourth of a cup of mayonnaise with the Bisquick. I poured in enough club soda to reach the right consistency—moist to the point of stickiness, but not too sticky—while stirring.

I roll my biscuits by hand. I turn cold water on to a slow stream and keep my hands wet as I roll the biscuits. This is the way they looked before going into the oven:

I baked the biscuits on the middle rack about fourteen minutes and turned on broil for a couple of minutes to brown the tops. This is the way they turned out:

They were not as light as my regular biscuits but lighter than most gluten-free bread products. They do not taste exactly like my biscuits but are close!

Next time I’ll try my own gluten-free flours instead of the Bisquick mix, but I’ll definitely use this recipe again!

  1. Interesting. I've seen a lot about gluten free breads, but haven't tried any yet. Your biscuits look great, Sheila!
