    We love these biscuits! They are great to top on chicken pot pie or as a side with soup. My kids and husband (who do not need to eat gluten free food) snatch them right up!

    I love these! I make them all the time. Sometimes I add other things, such as cut up pieces of cooked bacon plus onions plus herbs to make a delicious savory and filling meal-on-the-run. My favorite way to eat them is with butter and honey drizzled on top.

    These were pretty good. So quick to make. I added more flour and a splash more milk to get 4-5 small fluffy biscuits but they were tasty. Used butter as I did not have shortening. Nice for a quick turnaround at a holiday meal.

    This recipe is easy and delicious. We’ve made it countless times. It’s a great base recipe for adding to – we usually add shredded cheddar cheese and garlic powder and once it’s baked it gets a sausage patty and peach jam or maple syrup. My favorite breakfast! Just recently used these for biscuits and gravy and it was perfect. Thank you, Pamela!

    These biscuits are so good!!
    I love putting meat and cheese in between it and eating it as a sandwich

    Easy to whip up and great flavor, but these are very crumbly, disintegrating all over the plate.

    We make these all the time! The kids and I love them. They are even better with butter. One of our favorite meals is chicken and dumplings with these biscuits dropped into homemade chicken and vegetable soup, cover and simmer for 8-9 minutes. Yum!

    I add 2 heaping Tbsp. of sour cream to this recipe for the biscuits, then use as dumplings in my favorite chicken and dumplings recipe. Heaven in a pot!

    These are easy and delicious – we make them with coconut oil instead of shortening and it works out well!

  14. Kari October 26, 2015 at 4:21 pm #

    Yum! And so easy! I don’t use shortening so did half butter and half coconut oil. Delish!

    Best biscuit I ever had! Easy and tasty!

    I made this recipe with butter since I don’t have shortening. I divided the dough into 6 lined muffin tin cups to help keep their shape. It is best let the cool a little before removing the paper liner.

    I had one with turkey sausage on the side; one with apple butter on top. Mmm…

    It was so fun to have a biscuit for the first time in long time.

    Delicious. I have made these biscuits several times for those in our family that are gluten free. They love them!

    These are delicious made with coconut oil, also I substitute half plain yoghurt/half water for the milk, makes them really light.

    Switch out the milk for yogurt and add splash of milk to help it come together and they are way more moist and hold together better! Delicious!

    These are really good! It was exciting to have something that has the taste and fluffy texture of a real biscuit after 2+ years of gluten-free eating. Based on a few above reviews, I subsituted the 1/3 cup of milk for plain yogurt, though kept the additional tbsp of milk. It took closer to 15 minutes for them to be done, but that’s likely due to my oven. Very easy to make by hand or with a mixer.
