2 1/2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/2

2/3
cup milk
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Vanilla Glaze

2/3
cup powdered sugar
1
tablespoon warm water
1/4
teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. In medium bowl, stir all biscuit ingredients just until soft dough forms.
  • 2 Place dough on surface generously dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 10 times. Roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cutter dipped in Bisquick mix. On ungreased cookie sheet, place biscuits 2 inches inches apart.
  • 3 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. While biscuits are baking, in small bowl, beat all glaze ingredients with spoon until smooth. Spread glaze over warm biscuits.

Expert Tips

To make drop biscuits, instead of kneading and rolling dough, drop dough by 12 to 15 rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

If you don't have a round biscuit cutter, a glass that's 2 1/2 inches in diameter is a good substitute.

Dried sweetened cranberries can be used in place of the raisins. Their slight tartness gives these biscuits a different flavor.
