Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

  This is the Bisquick Shortcake recipe I tried. First I want to say that they were not baking powder biscuits as we know and enjoy them. Without gluten you are just not going to get that. However, they are a very good alternative, tasted good and most of all were easy to make, used just the mix and not several expensive flours. Everyone had them and said they would have no problem eating them again. This is a large plus in my book. 
  The ease of making them and the cost are of the most importance to me, and the fact I can just go to my local grocery store and buy this item makes it a great choice. Nice to have a warm biscuit instead of just the berries as I would have normally had.
  I have not tried other GF brand mixes, but I must say, the fact that is is a Betty Crocker product was one of the main reasons I chose it to try.
