My Blog Spark, Bisquick Baking Mix... and Giveaway!

I've been getting text messages, phone calls, and hearing the buzz around the blogs about it, and Bisquick (through My Blog Spark) was kind enough to send me... a box of the new Gluten Free Bisquick baking mix!! Yay! My Blog Spark is pretty awesome, take a second to join! (No, I don't have to say that; I really mean it!)

I had so many ideas for this box of awesomeness, but decided to take inspiration from... the box. I followed the 4-ingredient biscuit recipe on the back:

2 cups Bisquick Gluten Free mix
1/3 c. shortening
2/3 c. milk
3 eggs

Heat oven to 400F. Cut shortening into mix, using fork, until particles are the size of small peas. Stir in remaining ingredients until soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 13-16 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 10 biscuits.

Super quick, super easy. Super yummy.

First I made 6 large biscuits, then I went down memory lane- when I was a kid I'd make these Bisquick cookie-type things with jam in the middle. Mmmm.

Next I'm going to try pancakes with the Pancake Pen. How fun does that look?? I'm also thinking it'd work fabulously for muffins- I always seem to make a mess when I fill the pan.

If anyone reads this poor deserted blog anymore, because My Blog Spark and Bisquick are so nice, one of you will receive a Gluten Free Bisquick prize pack!

Just leave a comment and share what you'd make first with the Bisquick baking mix. Biscuits? Pancakes? This amazing-looking apple pie? Mmm, chicken and dumplings ...or something totally unique? I'll pick a random winner a week from today.

Even if you don't win the prize pack, here's a link to a coupon  to save $1 when you buy a box of Bisquick GF baking mix.

Happy gluten-free-ing!

I used to make the best pancakes with Bisquick and a little lemon juice, which made them so light and fluffy. Can't wait to try it with the new mix!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. That's how I found yours.

I'd make blueberry pancakes, yum!

I saw this from the Gluten-free aggregator, and it looks like a great giveaway! I'm still looking for really good GF chicken and dumplins, so that's what I'd probably do first. It's so exciting to have Bisquick available!

Oh most definitely it would be biscuits. I have a hankering for a fresh homemade gluten free bacon and egg biscuit. MMMMM!

A hankering is exactly what I have for chicken and dumplings!
