- 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour with xanthan gum
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
- ½ cup salted butter, cold and cubed for vegan see notes below
- ¾ cup buttermilk, plus extra for brushing for vegan see notes below
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir well.
Add the cold butter and using a dough blender, fork or your hands, cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the milk to the flour mixture and gently stir until a dough forms. Knead with your hands a few times, until you are able to form a ball of dough.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a countertop or cutting board.
Place the dough onto the parchment paper. Using your hands, gently pat the dough into a 1-inch thick square or rectangle.
Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, round cookie cutter or even the rim of a glass, cut the biscuits out of the dough. Gather the scraps of dough, pat out and repeat the process until you've used as much of the dough as you can.
Place the biscuits onto your parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Brush the tops with milk and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are turning golden brown.
For Vegan and Dairy-Free Option:
Replace buttermilk with 3/4 cup plant-based milk mixed with 1 tablespoon of vinegar (any kind will do). This forms a vegan buttermilk.
Replace with butter with cold vegan butter or plant-based spread. I really like Miyokos brand for this purpose.
