      To substitute the shortening in the Sweet Biscuits recipe, you may be interested in using butter or margarine.

    I just made this recipe with butter instead of shortening and it was good! The texture was lighter and these definitely tasted much better than another gluten free biscuit recipe I tried from a different website. Thanks for the recipe! I was missing biscuits since I’ve gone gluten free.

      Hi Connie
      We would recommend using a powdered egg replacer to replace the eggs in the recipe, or you could use flax seed meal “eggs” as well. To use Flax seed Meal, 1 Egg equals 1 Tbsp. Flax seed Meal mixed with 3 Tbsp. water. Let sit 5 minutes and use as you would an egg in your recipe.

    Is it possible to use baking powder instead of Cr. of Tartar ?(Mine gets outdated before I use it up–& it is a bit costly)

      Hi Shirley,
      If you do not have cream of tartar you can omit it from the recipe entirely or add an additional 1/4 teaspoon of Baking Powder.
