Ingredients

Scones

  • 2 1/2
    cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/2
    cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2
    cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4
    cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 3
    tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 3
    tablespoons milk
  • 1
    egg

Maple Glaze

  • 1/2
    cup powdered sugar
  • 2
    teaspoons milk
  • 1
    teaspoon maple-flavored syrup

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Grease cookie sheet. In medium bowl, mix all scone ingredients until soft dough forms. Turn dough onto surface dusted with Bisquick mix; roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into ball; knead 10 times.
  • 2
    Pat dough into 8-inch round on cookie sheet (If dough is sticky, dip fingers in Bisquick mix.) Cut into 8 wedges but do not separate.
  • 3
    Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully separate wedges.
  • 4
    In small bowl, beat all glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle glaze over scones. Serve warm.

  • If you like, you can skip the glaze. Before baking, brush the dough with 1 to 2 tablespoons milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Be adventurous and replace dried cranberries with other dried fruit. Try dried blueberries, apricots, raisins or currants. Be sure to snip apricots and other large dried fruit into smaller pieces.
  • Kneading the dough 10 times is just enough to produce a moist, flaky scone. More kneading can lead to a drier scone.
  • For easy cleanup, line the cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
