Biscuits are the perfect side dish to roasted meats, outdoor barbecues, or smothered with butter and jam!



Preheat oven to 450° F.

In a bowl, combine rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and xanthan gum.

Cut in margarine or butter with a pastry blender, or an electric mixer on low. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk and egg all at once. Mix well until moistened and combined.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.


If you do not have buttermilk on hand, you can substitute with 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar and 1/2 cup milk. Combine and let stand for 5 minutes before adding to dry ingredients. Milk will slightly thicken to mimic buttermilk.

something's not right

Looks like an error in part of the recipe. It calls for 1/2 cup of buttermilk, but then says 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp of regular milk with 2 Tbsp of vinegar can be substituted. That's completely wrong, it's way too much liquid to replace only 1/2 a cup.

RE: Something's not right


Thanks for catching this and helping us make this correction. We've provided updated preparation instructions for the buttermilk above.
