I love LOVE hot crusty cheesy biscuits. But since we’re gluten free most of the time, I don’t bake them anymore. So when I saw a recipe for “Gluten Free Cheddar Drop Biscuits” by Recipes to Nourish, I had to make them. But of course, I had to put my own spin on it and add bacon and my favorite herb, Tarragon.
Wait until you make these hot & crusty on the outside, cheesy inside biscuits. They are so easy to make and they are gluten free! With crispy bacon bits and my favorite herb, Tarragon, and lots of garlic, there is nothing about these biscuits you won’t like. I used almond milk but you can use whole milk. I used arrowroot flour with this batch because that’s what I had but you can use tapioca or sweet rice flour. I think I’ll try sweet rice flour next time. These turned out a bit harder on the outside than I’d like. That’s what’s fun about cooking. You adjust the ingredients a little each time until you achieve the result you like!
And these are so easy! Combine put all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix them loosely. Scoop up a serving spoon sized dollop on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake! It only takes about 15 minutes! Easy peasy!
Make extra batches and freeze them in an air-tight container. They reheat very well. Just warm them up before eating. You want them hot, crusty and cheesy.
Gluten Free Garlic & Herb Cheese Biscuit
- Organic White Rice Flour (I use this) You can use brown rice flour too. I had this so that’s what I used.
- Unbleached parchment paper to line (I use this)
- Cookie Sheet and Cooling Rack (I love this because it’s two in one! ) After you bake the biscuits, put them on the rack over the cookie sheet!
- Aluminum Free Gluten Free Baking Powder (I use this)

Note: Whenever I use ingredients, I always use organic, grass-fed and pastured meats and butter. I don’t always state them because I feel like I’m being redundant but I hope you know that organic is what I always recommend even if I don’t state it in the recipes.
