Low(er) Carb Biscuits

Classic Biscuits with half the amount of wheat flour. 

1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 1/4 cup ap flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup very cold butter cut into small cubes
1 egg
Milk to combine (1/2 cup?)

Preheat oven to 400. Cut butter into dry ingredients until like wet sand. Add egg and milk until it forms a loose dough. It should look thin enough that it wouldn't hold a drop biscuit shape. Stir in milk quickly. Do not over mix. The batter will be lumpy and loose. Let it sit while you prep a baking sheet with parchment. Now the dough will be the right texture for drop biscuits. Drop onto sheet. It should make around 15. Sprinkle with garlic powder or Italian seasoning if you'd like. Bake for 12-16 minutes. Biscuits are done when they are browned and springy when you push into the center.
