Updated Sep 23, 2009

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
