any experience with 1-2-3 gluten free biscuit mix?

hi,

bought a biscuit mix called 1-2-3 biscuit mix in hopes to make biscuits with cream for the holiday tomorrow. i know that some gluten free stuff does hold well over night but due to time constraints i need to make them tonight.

any experience with this mix, anyone??

    DId you make them? If so, what were they like? I have celiac and make my own biscuits so wonder how they compare to homemade and to those containing gluten.

      i ended up making them the same day since i didn't want to chance it. i know for a fact that the Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten free cakes really should be made the same day otherwise the texture gets crumbly.

      the texture was a bit rubbery. they tasted ok, however, i made them with all buttermilk versus the original recipe which calls for whipping cream and half and half in the mix. they looked really lovely. would i make them again? well, i think so but i'd probably stick to the original recipe and see if comes out a little less rubbery.

        Thanks for posting your assessment. I have heard of the mix but have never seen it.

          got it at Whole Foods. it was $6.99 and seems like the best price anywhere. they have other mixes as well. i just think biscuits are difficult GF. at my local farmers market there are these people that sell GF scones that have such a great crumb. i've asked how they make the crumb so well and they don't reveal. they obviously want me to buy their product and i would love to but i'm usually with my son who has an egg and nut allergy and these vendors bake with lots of nuts. i don't buy anything he can't eat in front of him bc it just wouldn't be fair.

            We don't have a Whole Foods in our town. Is this blend a US thing, do you know?

              i have no idea but i'm sure you can contact them. i see you're in Canada. i'm sure you could get it on Amazon.

                That's ok. I prefer to make my own from scratch but I am still interested to hear about new products, etc. to tell my local celiac group.
