Jo's Homemade Biscuits... With a GF DF SF Twist

'MIND YOUR OWN BISCUITS + LIFE WILL BE GRAVY' (OR JELLY)

Confession... I live in the South and I love me some biscuits! 
The gluten, however, was getting all sorts of in my way. 
So I got rid of it, as well as the dairy and the soy... I'm looking at you butter and shortening!

 

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I am a HUGE fan of Chip and Jo! 
I totally sport my WACO tee every chance I get because growing up, leaving, and moving back to a small town with a big place in your heart is near and dear to our story. 

The Magnolia Journal is SO full of good things from encouraging articles, to delicious recipes, to just fun finds. I try to make a few things out of each issue and this is the first from the most recent Summer issue that is currently on newsstands. I have yet to be disappointed with an issue. There are no obnoxious fillers that are obviously included just to take up space so you will buy a magazine. 
(Can you tell how much I love when editors do that?!) 
Good content from good people. That's all.

You guys, this is far and away my best allergy friendly biscuit yet, so feast those gluten free eyes on this recipe and get back to living the good life.
