  • 2 cups Carbquik
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum optional
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon low-carb sweetener
  • cup heavy whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Whisk together Carbquik, baking powder, xanthan gum (if using), and sweetener. Cut in butter.
  • Stir in heavy whipping cream until a dough begins to form.
  • Knead dough with your hands until no longer crumbly. Press onto a non-stick surface.
  • Roll the dough out or divide and form into 8 biscuit shapes. Using a biscuit cutter on the rolled dough will give the best results. Place biscuit shaped dough out on a lined baking sheet. Use a Silicone baking mat or parchment paper lining to prevent sticking.
  • Bake at 450°F for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden brown.


The optional xanthan gum will help prevent crumbling when used.
This recipe makes 8 large biscuits.
To make the dough quickly, a food processor is the best way cut in the cold butter by pulsing it in and mixing in the cream to form the dough.
If you aren't using a good nonstick bake pan, line the sheet pan with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Sprinkle additional Carbquik on the surface before rolling out thee dough.
Use a biscuit cutter to get perfectly shaped small biscuits. A 2-inch cutter is recommended for thick biscuits, but a larger one will work if it's all you have.
