By Alisa Fleming Even though it’s gluten-free, this “cobbled” biscuit topping has a delicious scone-like flavor and texture. I prefer to make it with flaxseeds instead of xanthan gum, as we like the tender cake-like crumb, but if you want a firmer biscuit topping, use the xanthan. Makes 7-9 Servings Free of: Gluten and all […]
