Gluten Free Cheese Biscuits

I love cheese – and these Cheesy biscuits go with just about anything.  They are also the perfect compliment to Hearty Cabbage Soup (follow this link for the recipe).

Here’s how you do it –

 

  • 1 cup of gluten free flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix the flour, salt and baking powder until they are well blended.  Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour.  Using a fork, cut the butter into the flour until it looks like a course meal.

Add the cheese and toss it until each piece is coated with the flour mixture.

Stir in the cream and the water until it forms a wet dough.  Using a spoon or fork, drop about 2 Tablespoons per biscuit onto a buttered cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned.

Remove from the oven and serve hot.
