Tips for Perfect Gluten-Free Parmesan Honey Biscuits

Cold Ingredients: Ensure the butter and milk are very cold. This helps create a flaky texture.

Don’t Overwork the Dough: Mix until just combined to keep the biscuits tender.

Cream Brushing: Brushing the tops with cream before baking adds a lovely golden finish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different cheese? Yes, you can substitute Parmesan with cheddar or any other hard cheese for a different flavor.

Can I use a different flour blend? Make sure to use a gluten-free flour blend that is designed for baking and can be substituted 1:1 for regular flour. The flour should weigh 296 grams.

Can I use milk instead of cream? Yes, you can substitute whole milk. However, the cream makes them rich and more moist.

Can I use dried thyme instead of fresh thyme? Yes, you can use dried thyme if fresh thyme is not available. Use 1 teaspoon of gluten-free dried thyme in place of 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme.

What if I don’t have a cast iron skillet? If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, use a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The biscuits will still turn out delicious, though they might not have the same crispy bottom as baked in a cast iron skillet.
