Baking powder biscuits are at the top of my list of favorite foods. I have found that so many of my favorite recipes just don't translate well with GF flour. This recipe was created by the flour brand I use (gf Jules). I was excited and impressed by how well they turned out. In fact, I will not be making them too often because I will eat the whole batch by myself. If you are GF I hope you try them. Enjoy!
2 cups gf all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 butter, cold and cut into small pieces
3/4 cup whole milk, half and half or full fat coconut milk
Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put all dry ingredients into the bowl of your food processor. Pulse a few times to mix ingredients. Add the pieces of butter, pulse until mixture is pebbly in texture. (If you don't have a food processor you can use a pastry cutter).
Whisk egg and add to milk. With the processor running pour in egg/milk mixture through food chute in a steady stream, just until dough forms a ball and clings to side of bowl.
At this point you can scoop out dough onto prepared baking pan for drop biscuits or form the dough into a ball and pat to about 3/4 to one inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter for round biscuits or use a knife and cut into squares. (I have always used a knife and just cut squares. I never wanted to waste any dough left over from a round cutter).
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are just lightly brown.
