An easy and quick way to satisfy a craving for homemade biscuits – so buttery and delicious no one will know they’re gluten free.
One of the requests I hear most often is about making gluten free biscuits. It’ll be things like ‘how do I get that amazing tender texture’ or ‘is there a foolproof way to make them?’
For all the great questions about gluten free biscuits, this recipe is for you.
I’ve made it easy (using our gluten free bisquick), quick (about 25 minutes start to finish) and foolproof (yes, it’s about as reliable as they come!).
You may be thinking, how can you make a biscuit recipe foolproof? There are so many things that can go wrong!
Ah, but not with this recipe.
This recipe starts with our gluten free bisquick baking mix and only has 3 more ingredients. A little butter, arrowroot and milk and you have a biscuit worthy of breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s a delightful biscuit that will melt in your mouth.
One bite out of these buttery gluten free biscuits and you might be hiding the others for yourself too.
Here are some tips for making the best 4 ingredient gluten free bisquick biscuits ever:
Tip 1 – Get the oven heated up first
Because these biscuits are quick and easy to make, the odds are that the biscuits will be ready before your oven is. Start getting the oven heated up asap so it is ready and waiting for these biscuits.
Tip 2 – Use cold butter and cold milk
Biscuit recipes are not the norm when it comes to temperature of ingredients. Usually room temperature is the way to go so the resulting batter is light and fluffy. But biscuit batter is different. It should be more dough like and having cold butter and milk helps keep the butter from melting before the biscuit even hits the oven.

Tip 3 – No need for a rolling pin
Reason number 563 why I love this recipe…no need for rolling out the dough! Once the dough is fully combined, it should be easy to work with. Just flop it on your work surface and pat it out into a circle. The dough should be about 1 inch thick. And then just cut with a biscuit cutter.
Tip 4 – Work quickly
Warm butter spells disaster for biscuits. So working quickly with the dough is essential. Get the butter and milk mixed in and get those biscuits into the oven. Otherwise they start to melt and spread and that is not a good biscuit.
Tip 5 – Don’t double the recipe, make two batches
I’m being bold here, but you will probably want 10 biscuits and not just 5. Although it may seem like a time saver to just double the recipe, don’t.
Just use 2 bowls and make 2 batches, side by side.
It’s all about consistency!
