  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 2 1/4 cups gluten-free 1-1 flour mix Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried dill or other dried herbs
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar, coconut sugar or Monkfruit with erythritol sweetener
  • 1 cup buttermilk* see note below
  • 3 tbsp ricotta cheese


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Measure 6 tablespoons of butter. Cut into small pieces, transfer to a dish and freeze for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a food processor pulse the dry ingredients:  flour, baking powder, salt, sweetener and herbs. Alternatively, whisk dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Add the frozen butter and pulse a few times until mixture has the consistency of coarse meal. Alternatively, use two knives or a pastry blender to cut in the butter until only pea-sized pieces remain.
  • Mix buttermilk with ricotta cheese and whisk in the egg. If you don't have buttermilk, substitute 1 cup whole milk mixed with 1 tablespoon vinegar.
  • Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. The dough will be wet and sticky.
  • Turn out on to a board dusted with flour. Use your hands to gently press into a disc about 1 1/2 inches thick. Dust the top with a little more flour. Use a 2 - inch biscuit cutter to cut 8 round biscuits.  Press the remaining pieces of dough into a smaller disc, handling as little as possible and cut 2 more biscuits. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool before eating. They will be gummy when warm, but their texture improves when cooled.
  • Store in an airtight container.
