Dairy Free Soy Free Homemade Biscuits

Here is an easy recipe for homemade biscuits. We eat them with everything from jelly, sausage, and bacon to fried chicken. For the fried chicken I use my wing recipe just without the sauce (just the breading). Just cut your chicken into thin cutlets instead of wing shapes. Here's the recipe Dairy Soy Free Fried Chicken

I also make them with the dairy soy free buttery spread on top.

Dairy Soy Free Biscuits


Pam for Grilling Cooking Spray or Non Stick Foil

2 Cups Self-Rising Flour

1/2 Cups Spectrum Dairy Soy Free Shortening or Lard (I might even use more, I eye it)

2/3 to 3/4 Cups Water (I use 3/4)

*Optional: Earth's Balance No Dairy No Soy Buttery Spread


1. Heat oven to 500°F. Coat baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray or foil.

2. Measure flour into large bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until crumbs are the size of peas. Blend in just enough water with fork until dough leaves sides of bowl.

3.Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently 2 to 3 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut using floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on prepared baking sheet 1 inch apart for crisp sides or almost touching for soft sides.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

*Optional: Melt buttery spread in microwave and at the end of cook time for biscuits brush on butter. Put back in oven on broil for 2 minutes. Keep your eye on them they burn fast!

UPDATE: Please make sure to double check ingredients each time you buy. I hope I never overlook anything but it’s possible and ingredients can change. A lot of my posts are over two years old and since I have gone back dairy soy free I have discovered a few items I use to buy all the time that now have soy in them.

*If you use All-Purpose Flour: Combine 2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt before cutting in shortening. Follow directions above.
