Gluten Free Shortcake Biscuits Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Biscuits

These gluten free Shortcake biscuits are delicious, they just melt in the mouth! A real pick me up on a cold day and they go great with a steaming cup of tea.

The crumb mixture can be very fragile to work with so take your time when it comes to kneading it. I sometimes don’t use a rolling pin just push it down and shape with my hands.

My mum has experimented with this recipe for years until she got it just right, so thank you Mum for sharing it with us.
