123 Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuit Mix

I don't usually do reviews, and I don't use mixes too often, but I think both of those are going to change a little bit. I recently got a boxed mix for buttermilk biscuits from 123 Gluten-Free. They were AWESOME.
Ingredients:
Just followed the box instructions for the buttermilk biscuits - in addition to the mix, you need buttermilk, unslated butter, and some sugar.

Procedure:
Just followed the box instructions.  But, I actually couldn't find my measuring cup, so I had to roughly estimate  the 1 1/3 cups buttermilk.  The dough turned out way too sticky to roll out, so I added a little corn starch to thicken it up, corn starched my hands, and just hand-formed the biscuits.

Resulting Deliciousness:
Even with my less than ideal methods, these turned out fantastic.  They weren't shaped perfectly, but they tasted great. They aren't quite the buttermilk biscuits I know from growing up in the south, but they are damn good for GF. They allowed me to indulge in the somewhat unhealthy southern breakfast of a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit for the first time in probably a decade.  

The mix is a little pricey at $9 at Whole Foods, but totally worth it.

I agree - these are amazing. I have also put "add-in's" in without a problem. Try chives, cheddar cheese, and ham. Mmmm.....

I actually had not been thinking about that, but now I am! I've actually had chicken and dumplings in the back of my head for months, I might need to get that out soon. But, biscuits and gravy would be easy and quick, I'll look into it.

Thanks!
