Sweet or Savoury biscuits

I tweaked a biscuit recipe I found till I liked it, then discovered I could do sweet or savoury!

1/2cup brown rice flour

1/2cup GEMS flour

1/4cup tapioca flour

1/4cup potato starch

1 Tbsp  baking powder

1/4tsp salt

1/2tsp guar gum

1/4c butter or shortening

2/3cup milk of choice

if sweet – add 1Tbsp sugar,

will also need 2Tbsp melted butter, 1/4c brown sugar & 1 1/2tsp cinnamon for filling

If savoury – Add 1/2cup grated cheese, and/or 1Tbsp each chives & parsley

Preheat oven to 450. Blend flours & dry ingredients, cut in butter. Stir in milk & remaining ingredients so that mixture forms a ball. Pat into 1″ thick on a floured surface (a silicone pastry sheet or parchment paper works great) and cut into biscuit circles using a cookie cutter or drinking glass. For cinnamon rolls, pat into a 1/2″ thickness and spread with melted butter. Sprinkle with 1/4c brown sugar blended with 1 1/2tsp cinnamon. Gently roll up into a roll, and slice into 1″ thick rounds. Place on baking sheet (or for cinnamon buns – in muffin tins) and bake at 450 for 15 minutes. I’ve also made a cinnamon roll log – bake for approx 20 minutes Can also blend in bits of meat with the savoury option and top with a bit of pizza sauce.
