Warm Gluten-Free Biscuits

These biscuits go with any meal: breakfast, lunch, dinner or even afternoon tea. Sorghum flour is naturally gluten-free and helps give the biscuits their old-fashioned fluffy texture. Serve them warm from the oven with butter and preserves.

Preparation

In bowl, whisk together sorghum flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, baking powder, sugar, xanthan gum and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Drizzle in buttermilk, stirring, just until soft sticky dough forms.

Turn dough out onto parchment or waxed paper; form into 6-inch (15 cm) long log. Cut into 6 rounds; arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet. Bake in 450ºF (230ºC) oven until light golden, about 14 minutes.
