Gluten Free Cheese Biscuits

I love cheese – and these Cheesy biscuits go with just about anything.  They are also the perfect compliment to Hearty Cabbage Soup (follow this link for the recipe).


Here’s how you do it –


  • 1 cup of gluten free flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons of butter
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Mix the flour, salt and baking powder until they are well blended.  Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the flour.  Using a fork, cut the butter into the flour until it looks like a course meal.


Add the cheese and toss it until each piece is coated with the flour mixture.


Stir in the cream and the water until it forms a wet dough.  Using a spoon or fork, drop about 2 Tablespoons per biscuit onto a buttered cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned.

Remove from the oven and serve hot.

Makes 1 dozen biscuits.

  1. Hi Helen, Looks tasty! What kind of gluten-free flour do you use and/or recommend? I have only used coconut flour and chickpea flour. I really like how coconut flour has such a low glycemic index – especially since my husband is on insulin. Hope you’re having a good week! Blessings, Janet

      I have used Bob’s Redmill gluten free all purpose flour, but I found one at whole foods – ancient grains gluten free flour, but I don’t remember the brand.
