PrintEmail Ingredients 3/4 cup Ancient Grains Flour Blend3/4 cup yellow cornmeal3/4 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour or brown rice flour blend*1 teaspoon xanthan gum1 tablespoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 cup butter3/4 cup buttermilk1/4 cup maple syrup, real maple syrup preferred for best flavor1 large egg Instructions Preheat the oven to 425F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with parchment paper. Whisk together the dry ingredients, then use a fork, pastry blender, or electric mixer to work in the butter, mixing until everything is crumbly with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining. Whisk together the wet ingredients and stir into dry ingredients until just combined. The dough will be very wet. Drop golf-ball sized portions onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. A tablespoon cookie scoop, generously filled, is helpful for this. Bake the biscuits for 12 to 14 minutes, until they're light golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and serve warm. *Make your own blend: Many of our gluten-free recipes use our King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour, which includes ingredients that reduce the grittiness sometimes found in gluten-free baked goods. Our flour also increases the shelf life of your treats, keeping them fresh longer. The following make-at-home blend, featuring stabilized brown rice flour, works pretty well when substituted; and it tastes better than a blend using regular brown rice flour. Whisk together 6 cups (32 ounces) King Arthur stabilized brown rice flour; 2 cups (10 3/4 ounces) potato starch; and 1 cup (4 ounces) tapioca flour or tapioca starch. Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version).
