Gluten Free Shortcake Biscuits Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Gluten Free Recipes

These biscuits are delicious, they just melt in the mouth a real pick me up on a cold day 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 until she got it just right, so thanks mum for sharing it with us.
