Servings: 6
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup Bisquick or baking powder biscuit mix
  • 1 tbsp sugar more or less depending on how sweet you want them and what else you’re adding
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream or buttermilk
  • 1 tsp white vinegar optional only use with the milk
  • flavorings or mix-ins optional
Instructions
  1. Put the milk in a little dish and add the vinegar. Let it sit for a minute or so. It will thicken and be like buttermilk. Alternately if you are fortunate enough to keep cream or buttermilk on hand, just use that and skip this step.
  2. Break up the mix in a small bowl and combine with the sugar. Drop the egg in the middle of a well in the mix and beat the egg slightly. Add the milk and beat it in with the egg, gradually incorporating the mix. If the mix is too moist, you can add a little extra flour or more mix. (This will depend on the size of your egg and on how thick you want your mix.) Don’t worry if they are lumpy. The lumps are butter and will melt during cooking!
  3. Add in flavorings. I like a dash of lemon rind and dried cranberries, but you can use raisins or any dried fruit or other flavoring you like. Try cinnamon or other spices based on the time of year and your mood!
  4. If you want, you can add enough flour to knead this and make it into a ball. Flatten the ball and cut it into 6 or 8 wedges and put them on a baking stone.
  5. Or, leave it a little moist and drop by roughly large tablespoons onto the stone.
  6. Bake at 450°F for 10-12 minutes until they are nicely browned. Serve warm with butter, whipped cream, lemon curd, jam or whatever you have on hand.
