  • 2 cups (296 g) gluten-free flour blend (I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour which already contains xanthan gum)
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (if your flour blend doesn't already contain it)
  • 2 teaspoon (10 g) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon (6 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 g) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (4 g) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 g) cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon (4 g) fresh rosemary (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (cold and cubed into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 6 oz cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1 cup milk


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (if using), baking powder, baking soda, granulated sugar, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and fresh rosemary. Stir until combined.
  • Add the cubes of cold butter to the flour mixture and work with your hands or a pastry cutter until the butter is worked in to the flour and size of small peas. It's okay if you have some larger pieces in there.
  • Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Starting with 3/4 cup, add in the milk until the mixture just reaches a paste-like consistency. I used a little less than 1 cup of milk to reach this point.
  • Spoon or scoop 1/4 cup of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving at least 2 inches between each dollop of dough (there should be 12 total dollops of dough).
  • Bake the biscuits at 400F for 18 to 22 minutes, until the biscuits are a light golden brown. Serve warm.
