Roben Ryberg's Biscuits

Roben Ryberg's Biscuits (Gluten-Free) This recipe is a sampling from a new cookbook tentatively titled The Gluten-Free Baker by Roben Ryberg, scheduled for publication in the spring of 1999. Roben Ryberg: This dough is great fun to work with. My kids like to play with the scraps. This dough is quite soft, and so are the biscuits. Ingredients: 1/3 cup shortening ½ cup potato starch ¾ cup cornstarch 1 ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum 1 tablespoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon sugar ¾ cup milk ½ teaspoon salt Directions: Preheat oven to 375 . In medium bowl, blend all ingredients. Mix very well to remove any lumps. Dough will be quite soft and a bit sticky. Roll or pat our dough on a lightly floured (cornstarch) surface. Dough should be about ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½ inch cookie cutters. An inverted glass will also do the job. Place biscuits on lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Makes 6-8 large biscuits. Email
