Biscuits, revisited

Back in the day I posted a biscuit recipe that I'd tried and liked. Over the years, however, I've slowly changed and adapted it to a simplified version that I can now whip up without measuring by eyeballing and throwing stuff together until it looks "right." 


1 c. GF flour blend
1/2 T. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/4 c. butter, cut into tablespoons
1/4 c. milk,

Mix the dry ingredients together and cut in the butter until the mixture looks like little pea-sized balls of butter covered in flour. Stir in the milk to make a sticky dough. Drop little mounds onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Makes  6 biscuits.

P.S. Also makes a fantastic crust for chicken pot pie.

GF "Gingerbread" House

I was running late to a gingerbread house party this weekend and didn't have time to make gluten free gingerbread. I DID have some old gluten free rice krispies and two half-full bags of marshmallows, so I made rice krispie treats.

I cut the shapes out of the treats and stuck them together- no icing necessary- and it worked very well! Much sturdier than a house made out of cookie and still edible and gluten free, without spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
