Bisquick mix makes these scones simple – all you have to do is mix. You can now find dried blueberries in the same grocery section as the raisins, so you could make orange-blueberry scones! You can find almost any fruit in the dried fruit section of your store, this is just a good basic scone dough.
- 3 cups Bisquick
- 1⁄2 cup orange marmalade
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon orange juice
- 1 egg, beaten
- Mix Bisquick, marmalade, raisins, spices, 2 eggs and juice until moist. Turn dough onto floured board; sprinkle with flour.
- Roll into 9 inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges using floured knife. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.
- Alternate wedges - wide and narrow ends on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees 12-14 minutes.
I agree with jshorten - these are way too subtle in flavor. Next time I will try her suggestions...or at least add more spices! But this is a very easy recipe and the results look very nice - just need more of a flavor boost.
These were very easy to make, but a little too subtle with the orange flavor. Next time I will include some zest and use the oj to make a powdered sugar glaze. Thanks!
