My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free Drop Biscuits

This is the recipe I use the most when I make biscuits. It calls for only 2 ingredients and start to finish they are ready within 15 minutes.

Drop Biscuits

2 1/4 cup all purpose baking mix (I use Bisquick)
2/3 cup soy milk (this also works great with rice milk)

Thoroughly combine both of the ingredients. Drop by spoonful onto a foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
*  The biscuits pretty much retain the shape they are placed it. If you want prettier biscuits like the midde and bottom pictures, smooth out the biscuit mounds first before baking.
*  This recipe makes about 13 biscuits, depending on the size you make them. However, you can easily double or triple this recipe.
*  Crumbled bacon, diced pepperoni, garlic salt or another favorite seasoning can be stirred into the batter.
*  If desired, you can brush the hot biscuits with a melted dairy free margarine. You can also mix a little garlic salt or other favorite seasoning with the melted margarine.
*  We prefer these biscuits plain, served with dairy free tub margarine for everyone to add for themselves. Jazzy and I also like to sprinkle garlic salt over the margarine.
