It seems I can’t just leave a good gluten-free recipe alone. I have to tweak it to see if I can make it better, usually healthier. The way I often do that is by increasing the amount of whole grain slightly and decreasing the starch by an equal amount. I’ve done it with French bread, and French bread rolls. This time I did it with these delightful drop biscuits.
My family of guys likes having bread with a meal. Not always, but often, and it goes well with the soups and stews I make during the colder months. I usually rotate between a few recipes, and these biscuits are a favorite.
They are not your typical flaky, buttery biscuits, but they are wonderful. They have a delightfully soft texture, and my family loves them.
