Gluten Free Butter Drop Biscuits

Makes 12



  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt.
  3. Work in the butter with your fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and maple syrup. Add to the flour mixture and using a fork, mix until the flour is just absorbed.
  5. Drop twelve 2 tablespoon mounds of dough onto a buttered baking sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart. Place a dab of butter on the top of each biscuit.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Let cool slightly before removing from the baking sheet. Serve warm or at room temperature.
