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.


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


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.
