  • 2 cup wheat gluten flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ΒΌ cup shortening
  • 6 tbsp cream
  • 6 tbsp water


  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Combine cream and water to make 3/4 cup "milk" substitute.
  • Mix flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Cut in shortening thoroughly to resemble "meal".
  • Stir in almost all of the "milk".
  • If dough is not pliable, add just enough milk to make a puffy, easy to roll dough.
  • Make a ball of dough and place on lightly floured surface.
  • Knead 20-25 times or about one half minute.
  • Roll out dough to about one half inch thickness.
  • Cut with a floured cutter (a glass rim will work fine) and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Makes 16 biscuits. 3.5 carbs per biscuit.

Recipe Notes

Note, it takes a little more effort since gluten is a "binder" - just roll harder.
