How to Make Scones with Bisquick 

What ingredients are needed to make Bisquick scones?

Directions:

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an ungreased baking sheet, preferably without sides, with baking spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

Ensure your milk and egg are cold. This helps create a tender, flaky texture.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: bisquick biscuit mix and sugar. Use a pastry blender or two forks to cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until the mixture is crumbly. 

Add in the wet ingredients: eggs, milk and vanilla bean paste. Bring together until a soft dough forms with a fork. You may need to finish bringing the dough together near the end with clean hands. 

Gently fold in your chosen mix-ins. This step is where you can customize your scones to your liking.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and press into an 8-inch circle. 

Cut the disc into 8 large scones with a sharp knife. The easiest way to cut it into even scones is to view it like cutting a pizza. Cut the disc in half. Turn the disc 90 degrees and cut in half again. Cut each quarter in half once more. At this point, you should have 8 scones.

If the dough is too soft and is difficult to cut into scones, the butter may have been too warm. To remedy this, once the dough has come together, flatten into a disc, wrap with plastic wrap and place the disc into the freezer to chill for 20 minutes prior to cutting it into scones.

Once the scones are cut, carefully place wedges them onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 1”-2” between them for spreading. 

How long should Bisquick scones be baked?

Place the baking sheet into the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes or until the scones are lightly golden brown and baked through.

Once baked, remove the warm scones from the oven and place onto a wire rack to cool completely. 

While the scones are cooling, make the glaze. Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium sized bowl until a smooth, thick glaze has formed. 

If the glaze becomes too thin, whisk in 1-2 Tbs powdered sugar until the desired consistency has been achieved. If the glaze is too thick, whisk in 1-2 tsp milk. In either case, be sure to whisk well after each addition.

Once the scones have cooled, spoon the glaze onto the top of each one. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the glaze to set up slightly. 

What to Serve with Scones with Bisquick?

This Bisquick scone recipe is versatile and can be paired with a variety of delicious accompaniments. For a classic touch, serve them with clotted cream, butter, and fruit jams. Sweet options like honey, fresh berries, and whipped cream add a delightful contrast, while savory choices such as cheese, ham, and smoked salmon provide a rich, flavorful balance. Complement these with beverages like tea, coffee, or fresh juice to complete the perfect scone indulgence.

Notes

  • Keep your ingredients cold for flakier scones. Chill the butter and use cold milk or cream.
  • Don't overmix the dough. Mix until just combined to avoid dense scones.
  • Use a light touch when shaping the dough. Gently pat it into a disc and cut into wedges or use a biscuit cutter for traditional round scones.
  • Brush the tops with cream or egg wash for a golden and glossy finish.
  • If the dough is too soft and is difficult to cut into scones, the butter may have been too warm. To remedy this, once the dough has come together, flatten into a disc, wrap with plastic wrap and place the disc into the freezer to chill for 20 minutes prior to cutting it into scones. 
  • If the glaze becomes too thin, whisk in 1-2 Tbs powdered sugar until the desired consistency has been achieved. If the glaze is too thick, whisk in 1-2 tsp milk. In either case, be sure to whisk well after each addition.

You can! I would try dried fruit. Fresh may add too much moisture.

I've decided the last 3 ingredients are the glaze recipe. Added rhubarb & doubled the recipe. These aren't the consistency of scones at all but they're not bad!think of them as bisquick biscuits woth extra sugar, bc that's what they are. In a pinch tho, they'll do :-)

@Wylde, Thank you for your comment about the glaze - I was hunting all over the place to find it - thought I was slowly "losing it". I can't wait to make these, they sound really good! Jan
