About The Star of the Recipe: Biscuits

Can I Use Pre Made Gluten Free Refrigerated Biscuits?
I have not been able to find pre made gluten free refrigerated biscuits but if you find them you can absolutely substitute them in this recipe.
Which is Better to Use...Drop or Rolled Biscuits?
We used drop biscuits in this recipe. The original recipe uses pre made refrigerated biscuits so for ease we used drop biscuits but rolled biscuits work too.
Can You Use Gluten Free Frozen Biscuit Dough?
We haven't been able to find this at any store but we would love it if they made it!
How to Store the Biscuit Bake: 
Cover and store for several days in the refrigerator. Heat to warm.
