  • 2 ¾ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons milk for brushing over the biscuits


  • Preheat the oven to 400º F
  • In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Add the cold butter and use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour. When you are done it will look like there are pebbles in the flour.
  • Pour the milk into the bowl and mix into a dough ball.
  • Place a piece of wax paper down and put the dough ball on it. Feel free to dust the dough with a little gluten free flour.
  • Press the dough to 1 ½ to 2 inches thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out biscuit shapes. Do not twist the biscuit cutter when pulling it out of the dough.
  • Place the biscuits onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Brush the top of each biscuit with milk. This will help the tops get golden.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are slightly golden. Actual time may vary depending on the size of your biscuits.



  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter, use non-dairy milk, and use a vegan cheese that melts like VioLife.
  4. I used full-fat milk, but 2% will also work well.
  5. These biscuits will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
