My family and I just moved into a new home and are looking forward to having friends and family visit. I love hosting small gatherings and am always looking for fun appetizers to offer to guests. I like to have a variety of options so that everyone can enjoy great food when they visit our home.
I’d say it’s perfect timing—wih the holidays way behind us, it’s been a while since we’ve all gotten together. Awards season is the perfect excuse. No awards watching party is complete without some fancy-schmancy appetizers! These gluten free spinach and artichoke cups are both easy to make and a great modern twist on a starter favorite. The crust is baked to perfection, and the dip filling is full of flavor and my favorite: cheese!
If you’d like to make these appetizers ahead of time, they are great to keep in the refrigerator overnight and reheat when you are ready to entertain.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a cupcake pan with nonstick spray.

Step 3: Use an electric mixer to blend your butter and biscuit mix until it gets grainy. Then cut in your milk and set aside for a few minutes to rise.
Step 4: Sprinkle almond flour onto a flat surface to roll out your dough to ¾ of an inch thick.
