Cheese, glorious cheese! Sharp, Mild, Jack, Brie, Parm or Vegan – we love cheese. Add cheese to biscuits and life is good.
What makes our biscuits special?
Our gluten free cheese biscuits taste delicious and bake up tender, moist and golden without xanthan gum. They also have a bit of ground golden flax seeds for texture and fiber. Choose your favorite cheese, there are no rules when it comes to cheese! You may also add extras such as jalapeno pepper, bacon, or corn. Play with different options and have fun with this recipe.
We use a scoop to drop our biscuits on a double-deck cookie sheet. You don’t need to roll, stack, or cut the dough. The rounded shape makes them easy to open up and dress.

Before You Dive In – Prep:
- Move oven rack to center
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (232 degrees Celsius)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment
- Place the lined baking sheet inside (or on top of) another baking sheet
- If you are using honey instead of cane sugar, mix the honey with the oil and vinegar in a small bowl, set aside
- Grate the cheese
Choose Gluten Free, Non-GMO & Organic ingredients.
- 216g (7.6 oz) Flour Farm Organic Gluten Free Flour Blend (2 C)
- 4 tsp Aluminum Free, Double Acting Baking Powder (18g)
- 1 tsp Cane Sugar (4.5g)
- 1/2 tsp Extra Fine Pink Himalayan Salt (3g)
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda (1.5g)
- 1 T Ground Golden Flax Seed (7g)
- 42g (1.5 oz) Very Cold Butter (3 T)
- 170g (6 oz) Sour Cream (3/4 C)
- 1 Large Pasture Raised Egg (50g)
- 2 T Oil – we use Avocado Oil (26g)
- 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (8g)
- 43g (1.5 oz) Grated Cheese (Packed 1/2 C)
- 44 ml (1.5 oz) Heavy Cream or Melted Butter
Please read the prep note above before you begin. Thank you!
Step 1: In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients with the exception of the butter.
Step 2: In a separate medium bowl, mix together the sour cream, egg, oil, vinegar, honey if using in place of cane sugar, and cheese.
Step 3: Grate the butter into the large bowl with the dry mixture. Use a fork to integrate the butter into the flour.
Step 4: Add the sour cream mix to the flour and butter mixture. Use a heavy spoon to thoroughly combine. Use your hands to mix if you need to. Make sure all flour bits are soaked up.
Step 5: Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
Step 6: Scoop up about 42g (Blue Scoop #16, 2 oz) of dough in the cookie/ice cream scoop. Drop on the parchment about 1/2 inch apart.
Step 7: Optional- brush heavy cream or melted butter onto biscuit tops. We prefer heavy cream. You may also glaze the biscuits after they come out of the oven. It’s up to you!
Step 8: Bake in the center of a preheated oven for 16-18 minutes. The tops should appear golden brown.
Step 9: Remove biscuits from the oven and place the pan on a cooling rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and transfer directly to cooling rack to completely cool or eat them hot out of the oven with your favorite spread.
To store: Once the biscuits are completely cool, you can store them in an airtight container. They will stay delicious for two days, but taste better when reheated.
To freeze: For best results, it’s best to freeze biscuits the same day you make them, within a few hours of coming out of the oven. Store them in a freezer safe container for up to a month. Reheat them in the oven (we set our temp to 250 degrees Fahrenheit/121 degrees Celsius,) or microwave.
