Hello dear reader,
If you've been following this blog since my Live Below the Line recipes post series then you may recall that I mentioned I had a really good GF biscuit recipe that I had been planning to upload, but all I could upload at that time was a cheap version of it. Well today here's the real deal! I'm not trying to hype you up these really are very, very good biscuit!
This recipe calls for Non-GMO Soy Protein. I emphasis that you should be sure to get Non-GMO as soybeans are one of the most heavily genetically modified foods in the planet, birthing may possible health risks. I was going to include some links to the health risks of soy for men but the topic is so controversial that I have decided not to (you may look it up on your own). That being said I do not cook with soy very often, these biscuits are one of the few times I do. You can make this recipe using 5 tbsp of 100% whey protein in place of the 1/4 cup soy if you like, the biscuits wont be quite as good to the taste but they will still be plenty rewarding.
Heat oven to 400f.
Okay now all you need is:
1 1/4 cup Tapioca flour/starch
1/2 cup Amaranth Flour
1/4 cup Non-GMO Soy Protein
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Butter, frozen & grated
Now using a pastry knife cut into the flour:
If you are one of the many people who have never heard of a pastry knife before (ps. let me know in the comments section if you have or haven't), then you most likely don't own one. That being said, you can instead use a potato masher for this method (as shortening will slice very easily).
Now stir in:
2/3 cup Milk
If you are comfortable handling the dough with your hands/rolling pin then flatten in into a small rectangle (10 cm long or so) if the dough it to sticky then skip to the next paragraph. Now fold the dough in half. Flatten again into a small rectangle. Fold again. Repeat flattening and folding another 2-10 times. Now roll/flatten it out to 2 cm thick (4/5 inch) and cut into your desired size of biscuit. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet or glass pan.
Drop cookie dough onto a cookie sheet by tablespoons full and pat down with the palm of your hand or glass pan.
Place cookie sheet in the center of the oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool 1 minute then remove from the pan.
