You will need the following ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose GF flour, plus more for rolling out dough

1 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if your blend already contains it)

7 tablespoons nonfat dry milk

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, roughly chopped and chilled

7 fluid ounces (14 tablespoons) milk or cream, chilled

Combine all the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter and then using a pastry blender mix well.

Make a well in the mixture and add the milk. I used kefir instead of milk or cream as the recipe calls for.

Once all dry ingredients is moistened, put half the dough out on a floured, 12×12 piece of wax paper. Sprinkle flour on dough and place another piece of wax paper on top.

Roll thin. Then remove top layer of the wax paper. Replace. Flip. Remove the top piece of the wax paper.

Fold the flattened dough in half.

Fold in half again. It should look like the dough pictured above. Mold edges of dough into the shape of a circle. Repeat rolling out again. On the second time roll to a thickness of 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.

Place biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. When all dough has been cut up, place cookie sheet in oven that has been preheated to 375 degrees. Or place uncooked biscuits on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once biscuits are frozen, you can place them in a bag and freeze until needed.
