Homemade Keto Biscuits using King Arthur Keto Flour ..... (Update: July 1st, 2021)


(Using Keto Wheat Flour  from King Arthur) 
When it first came out this past winter, the price was absolutely atrocious so I ignored it.  There is no way I'm paying $13 - $18 for a 1 lb. bag of keto flour when a single loaf of bread would use it up completely as well as a host of other expensive ingredients.  I'd rather just buy a loaf of keto bread and call it done. 
However, popping into my local Publix grocery store last month, I found that it was reasonably priced $8.99 and even better, they were running a sale on it to try to get people to try it I guess, as it was $2 off.  I didn't know if I'd like it or not but I bought 3 bags and hoped for the best.

This week I made my first 'trial' using my regular flour biscuit recipe I've been making since the late 90's and I was very, very happy with it!
Almond flour baked goods are fine most of the time, but sometimes I really crave a more 'real' bread or biscuit product.  This one is obviously not made with all purpose or bread flour so it's not exactly like the good old Southern biscuits I love but it's close enough that I'm 100% happy with it.

Homemade Keto Biscuits

2 c Keto Wheat Flour  from King Arthur
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
3/4 T sweetener, granulated
1/4 c real butter
3/4 c heavy cream or half and half

Preheat your oven to 450.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with no-stick baking spray.  Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, two forks or your fingers (my personal favorite) until the butter is incorporated into the flour mixture and it's course crumbs.  Stir in the cream with a fork or wooden spoon until it forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.  (Keto flour sometimes needs a little more liquid so you might have to add 1 c cream if your dough is too dry and not coming together to a nice wet dough ball.)
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface (I turn it out directly onto the parchment lined baking sheet), sprinkle with more keto flour and knead only about 2-3 times until no longer sticky.  Pat or roll out to about 3/4 - 1" thick round and cut with a floured round biscuit or sharp edged cookie cutter.  
Cut straight down, don't twist!  This ensures high rising biscuits.  Re roll scraps up to a couple times, but keep in mind every time you re-roll the dough gets a little stiffer and your biscuits a little tougher.  Bake about 10-12 minutes until the tops are golden brown.  Makes about 8-10 biscuits.

(I put the leftovers in a simple ziploc baggy and they were really good the next day and still quite tender and moist)



UPDATING JULY 1, 2021:   

Like it or not, I'm finding the best price for King Arthur Keto Flour to be at... Amazon.  Walmart grocery, Winn Dixie and Hy-Vee did not carry King Arthur Keto Flour but Publix does; though it's priced around $10.99-11.99 and I won't pay that much for it.
