Low Carb GF Biscuit

Submitted by: TRAINLADY1107


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 and 1/2 tablespoons of unsalted organic butter or nonhydrogenated shortening
    1 cup plus two tablespoons of finely ground blanched almond flour
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    3/4 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
    2 egg whites

Directions

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. Cut cold butter or shortening into dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until butter is in pea sized chunks.
2. Chill mixture in fridge 5-10 minutes. The colder your butter is, the fluffier your biscuits will be.
3. Separate egg whites from yolks. Whisk egg whites in a bowl for 20 seconds or until no longer stringy and gloopy. You want them to be slightly foamy.
4. Remove mixture from fridge and whisk in the egg whites. The dough will be extremely runny with chunks of the almond mixture.
5. Pour into well greased muffin cups (edges stick really badly, so make sure they are definitely well greased) and get it in the hot oven before the butter softens.
6. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
