These gluten-free drop biscuits are easy to make, taste delicious, and the texture is heavenly. They are soft like a roll but don’t use yeast, so they’re quick to make. They’re great to serve with soup on a cold winter evening!
You can take a little more time to make these look nice by smoothing them with the back of the spoon, or try using an ice cream scoop to drop them onto the cookie sheet. As you can see, mine aren’t the most attractive because I wanted to get them in the oven. No one cared how they looked, but everyone loved the taste and texture. They are not flaky, but they are very soft. Trust me, you’ll love them.
