Directions:

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

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. 

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.

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

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 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.

Tips & Tricks for Delicious 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. 

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.

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 :-)
