I’ve been loving cooking through Smitten Kitchen’s Every Day book. Here’s my gluten-free take on her everything drop biscuits.

Smitten Kitchen Everything mix, tweaked slightly.

1 TBS toasted sesame seeds
1 TBS black sesame seeds
2 TBS poppy seeds
1 TBS minced dried onions
2 tsp minced dried garlic
1 tsp coarse kosher salt

Mix together well and set aside in a small bowl. (I fully plan to make more of this and eat it on buttered popcorn.)

my GF biscuits

2 cups Cup4Cup baking mix
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup cold salted butter, cut up into small pieces
slightly less than 1 cup buttermilk (I’ve easily substituted milk when I’m out of buttermilk – I just add in a splash of lemon juice.)

Preheat oven to 450º.  Mix the Cup4Cup, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until nothing is bigger than a pea. Stir in the milk and mix until it just comes together.

Drop 10 similar sized rough mounds of dough, one at a time, into the Everything mixture and roll to coat. Transfer to a lined baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown. When you remove them from the oven, there will be extra butter pooling around the biscuits. This is what makes them so good! Just let the biscuits cool on the baking sheet slightly and they will reabsorb most of the butter.

 

*Note: If you want to roll these biscuits out and cut into circles, decrease the milk to 2/3 cup.

Pour 2 bottles red wine (I used a local merlot) and 1 cup 100% pear juice over Strawberries, lemons, limes, raspberries, and 1 pear cut into chunks.

Let meld in fridge for several hours.

Serve over ice with a splash of club soda.
