They have the gluten free Bisquick at my local Vons but it was $6.50 for a tiny box!! YIKES! So I didn't buy it.

Holy cow! I've never heard of it being that expensive. I paid $3.84 at my local Wal-Mart and I thought that was expensive since it's only a 16 oz. box.

I got it at Walmart for $3.50. So far the only thing I've made is Chicken and Dumplings. They were FANTASTIC. I used my own recipe for the main part and then followed the recipe on the liveglutenfreely website for the dumplings part. Our entire family loved the dish and I will make it again for sure!

It's less than $4.00 here also.

I've made pancakes, adding some flax meal, blueberries, and pecans for a little boost in nutrition and texture. Came out great.

It's definitely in Puget Sound - the Safeway in Newcastle has it. You might try calling around if you really want to find it?

I was suspicious...the betty crocker chocolate chip cookies I tried were aweful! I will stick to my from scratch recipies!

Sorry to hear this! Bought some of this cookie mix last week and have not yet had the energy to bake them! Been waiting for heat wave to let up before lighting the oven. (Hopefully, they are better than NO cookies at all!)

PS Wonder what was so "aweful" about the BC c/chip cookies? Did they not hold together well? Were they too bland, blah, no texture, too sweet? Guess I'll bake these soon and find out!

That surprises me. I've made cookies several times from the BC CC product, and have had excellent results every time. Super simple to make. I add extra chips and lots of nuts. The only problem I had, was you need to put the dough in the fridge for a few minutes and in between batches. Otherwise it may spread out too thin when cooking.

But that's the same thing you have to do for made from scratch gluten-free cookies, which are a real PITA, due to all the ingredients. Plus, there was a pretty big learning curve for me when I first attempted gluten-free CC cookies from scratch. BTW, I considered myself to be a pretty good baker before gluten-free. But no matter how much I tried, I could never make good gluten-free bread.

Larry Mac,

I know we live close to each other but I haven't been able to find the gluten-free Bisquick. Where in Wylie did you find it?

I got mine at Wal-mart for $3.50ish. (I live in WV so we're usually last to get stuff like that!) I used it in a couple of muffin and cookie recipes and it did fine. I prefer Pamela's gluten-free baking mix but the Bisquick is a lot cheaper and perfectly acceptable. I also love the brownie mix and I used the cookie mix to make a chocolate chip cheesecake recipe from their website and the gluten eaters LOVED it.

I have used the Bisquick to make guess what... biscuits. I followed their recipe except I don't like drop biscuits so I formed them by hand (coated hands with a little Bisquick) They aren't what I used to make but far and away better than any gluten-free recipe I have tried.

I'm a bit far from you then. I'm in West Virginia. It's nestled between Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Quite rural so we don't get a lot of new products or speciality products very quickly.

OK, back with a brief report on our experiences with BC choc-chip cookie mix...

It was rather weird and a little difficult to mix up the dough. When they said "dough will be crumbly," they were not kidding. Maybe if they upped the amount of butter or added a little oil or more egg, the dough would stick together better? Had to roll dough in hands (like fish bait! LOL) to get it to even remotely stick together. It did manage to hold together, for the most part, during baking--although many cookies broke up when removing from baking sheet.

The cookies themselves were rather DRY and not chewy (more like sandy); and there were too many choc-chips for our taste (especially for me, since chocolate can tend to cause insomnia or a-fib in me). Was so distracted by the dry, crumbly dough, I forgot to add walnuts, which would have made them better. Overall, household voted them "Not bad, but they need walnuts and fewer chocolate chips..." --Probably won't bother with this B.C. mix again... but it satisfied craving for choc-chip cookies for at least a year or so!

I've been getting it at Brookshires. I'd be surprised if Kroger, Albertsons, and Tom Thumb weren't carrying it.

This post is a little off topic, but since there was already a discussion here about cookies I'm taking a small liberty. I looked for a BC gluten-free CC Cookies thread, but didn't find one that seemed to fit this discussion.

About the problems with the Betty Crocker gluten-free Chocolate Chip cookies.

I have had great success with these. I use a Kitchenaid heavy duty stand mixer with the paddle attachment, on low/med speed. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I do know that this baby will mix some dough! I started out four years ago using a Sunbeam stand mixer. And although I love the antique look of it, it just doesn't perform well enough, what with the two old style beaters (like a hand held mixer), and the weak power of the motor and/or gearing. A hand mixer or Sunbeam stand mixer is fine for cake mixes and whipped cream, but ill suited for bread and cookie doughs.

Night and day difference between the two.

Also, I usually buy jumbo brown eggs, use a stick of real butter, add extra chocolate chips, and a whole cup of chopped pecans. My cookie dough after mixing is thick. Not excessively sticky. Not at all crumbly. I don't recall having to "adjust" the consistency at all. But, if it did need adjusting, just like any other baking item, gluten-free or not (but especially gluten-free), I would definately adjust it. I know from experience what cookie dough looks and feels like. If for some reason it is too wet or thin, then it needs more dry ingredients (and less liquid ingredients next time). Conversley, if it is too dry and crumbly, it needs more liquid ingredients.

I make sure the oven is well pre-heated (it takes longer than some realize because it tends to cycle on & off a lot at first, until the mass of the oven is fully stabalized), and only bake one sheet at a time on the middle rack. In between batches I keep the metal mixing bowl containing the dough in the fridge. It gets pretty hard when cold. Cold cookie dough keeps them from spreading out too much too fast. I cook them a tad longer because I like crispy cc cookies. However, unless I take extreme measures to keep them dry, they will naturally soften up, and won't be crispy anymore.

I'm just trying to detail every little thing I can think of that might make a difference between good and bad results. Happy baking!

best regards, lm

p.s., edited a few times to add stuff I forgot and/or correct spelling! lm

great Post Larry

I found them to spread flat too, but like you, I like them crispy also. How long can you keep them out on the counter? Know alot of gluten-free items have to be refrigerated. I tried putting in air tight container and also zip lock baggies but they get soft. What's you secret to keeping the 'crisp' in the cookie?

Hi Judy,

The only containers I have found up to the task of keeping BC gluten-free CC cookies (baked crisp) crispy are the relatively expensive hard body, heavy duty food storage containers such as Rubbermade, Mainstays, Sterilite, etc. that have the better constructed lids. These lids fit tight! They either are pretty difficult to put on, or have the locking type snap on lids. You'll know the difference when you see them. And they only come in single units, not 4-5 for $3.

When I take them out of the oven, I put them on wire cooling racks 'till they're fully cooled, maybe 30 minutes. Then I put them in the storage containers.

The ones I have only hold maybe 3-4 to 6-8 cookies each, which I suspect is a good thing. That way minimizes the times each container is opened, exposing the cookies to the atmosphere. I've just left the containers sitting out on the kitchen counter and they did fine for the few days they lasted. I'm the only one eating them and I only eat a couple at a time. If they do happen to get soft, I put them in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the cc's. Or sometimes I put them in my little countertop nuclear convection oven and re-crisp them.

best regards, lm

thanks so much

I have some of the rubbermade ones but didn't put in right away. Maybe that's the secret. They don't last long do they. They are so goodtongue.gif

Katz must be a regional thing. I've never seen it around North Texas. We don't have any Wegman's or Feel Rite either.

I bought it because I think the very best dumplings were always from Bisquick. I made waffles w/ it and wasn't AT ALL impressed. I much prefer Pamela's pancake/waffle mix. I sure hope it makes good dumplings for my beef stew!

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
