Gluten Free Cheddar Cheese Beer Drop Biscuits:

Makes 9-12  Biscuits
In a large bowl combine:
2 ¼ Cups Gluten Free Flour Mix (***Foot Note***)
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 Tbl Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 Tbl Sugar

Add: Using 2 Forks, a Pastry Blender or your Fingers until the mixture resembles sand
1/2 cup Butter, Chilled and Cubed

Add: and Mix in:
1 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese

Add and Mix just until combined:
1/2 Cup Buttermilk (I used Powdered Buttermilk,,follow directions on the container)
1/2 Cup Gluten Free Beer (I used New Grist)

Line 2 Cookie Sheets with Parchment paper or Silpat Baking Mats

Using an Ice Cream Scoop: Scoop the dough onto the prepared pans.

Top each Biscuit with a Little bit of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (I used ½ Cup Cheese)

Lightly Press down the Biscuits

Bake in a 350* Preheated oven 12-15 Minutes just until golden brown on the bottoms. (Turn over if they get to brown)

Remove from the Oven and turn on the Broiler

I removed the Silpat Liner and placed the Biscuits on the Cookie Sheet, I wasn't sure if the Silpat could be used under a broiler.
Brush the Biscuits with butter (I used 3 Tbl Butter)
Place under the Broiler for 1-2 Minutes or until Golden Brown on the Tops. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
Cool for a few minutes on a Wire rack then serve.

(***FOOT NOTE***)

You can use the recipe below for home made Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix

Gluten Free Home Made Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, cakes, quick breads and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.
