GARLIC BUTTER BISCUITS






GARLIC BUTTER BISCUITS

These are delicious, moist biscuits…I used the Cheddar cheese in blocks from Costco (called PriceSmart here).  My husband was over the moon with these biscuits!  They were practically perfect!  You have to try them!  You will think you are cheating!  So good!  They make a wonderful alternative for garlic bread with low-carb lasagna or any meal where you are accustomed to serving garlic bread.  These are so good, you’ll feel like you are cheating!

21/cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (560 mL)
1 tbsp baking powder (15 mL)
1 tbsp granulated erythritol, OR 2  (15 mL)
  coffee sweetener packets
1/tsp salt (1 mL)
1 egg
3/cup almond milk (175 mL)
2 tbsp butter (30 mL)
11/tsp unflavored gelatin (7 mL)
1/tsp crushed garlic (2 mL)
  (the bottled kind, or use 1/8  tsp garlic powder)
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese (500 mL)
Garlic Butter Glaze:
3 tbsp butter, melted (45 mL)
1/tsp dried parsley (2 mL)
1/8  tsp crushed garlic (the bottled kind) (0.5 mL)

Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).   Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, baking powder, erythritol and salt.  In food processor or stand mixer, process egg, almond milk, butter, gelatin and garlic.  Add dry ingredients; process.  Stir in Cheddar cheese; process 12 seconds only.  Using ice cream scoops, drop batter on parchment paper in domes, no more than three in a row vertically as they do spread a bit.  Bake 20 minutes, or until golden brown underneath and on top.  While hot, brush the biscuits with Garlic Butter Glaze.

Garlic Butter Glaze:  In small bowl, melt butter in microwave oven and stir in parsley and garlic.

Helpful Hints:  I have also made these with 1/cup (60 mL) butter.  They spread more, are very crispy on the outside and soft inside.  No need to open them to butter them…they are good just as they are.  Bake for 30 minutes and during the last 10 minutes, cover with foil.
