  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 25 min
  • Servings 8

2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
2
tablespoons sugar
1
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3
cup milk
1
egg
1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2
cup sugar

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, the nutmeg, cinnamon, milk and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 2 Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix. Roll dough into a ball; knead about 5 times. Press or roll dough until 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with doughnut cutter dipped in Bisquick mix.
  • 3 To make bow shapes, hold opposite sides of each ring of dough, then twist to make a figure 8. On ungreased cookie sheet, place bows and buttons (the dough from the center of each ring).
  • 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately dip each bow and button into melted butter, then in 1/2 cup sugar. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg in the dough, try freshly grated orange peel. Then drizzle the baked buttons and bows with a mix of powdered sugar and orange juice.
