Bask in the goodness of these decadent biscuits prepared with wheat gluten flour. They're every bit as tasty as the traditional type.

2 cups wheat gluten flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/8 cup cream
3/8 cup water

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine cream and water to make 3/4-cup "milk" substitute. Mix flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening thoroughly to resemble "meal". Stir in almost all of the "milk". If dough is not pliable, add just enough milk to make a puffy, easy to roll dough. Make a ball of dough and place on lightly floured surface. Knead 20-25 times or about one half minute. Roll out dough to about one half-inch thickness. (Note, it takes a little more effort since gluten is a "binder" - just roll harder). Cut with a floured cutter (a glass rim will work fine) and place on an un-greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
