  • Baking Sheet




  • Pre-heat your oven to 400° F, and either grease a baking sheet, or add parchment paper to it. I prefer to use parchment paper because the scones just slide right off of it after baking.
  • Whisk Bisquick baking mix, sugar, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Using a pastry blender (or table knife), cut the cold, sliced butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture consists of fine crumbles.
  • In a separate measuring cup or bowl, beat the egg, vanilla extract, and buttermilk together.
  • Mix the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, just 'til blended. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Drop the dough, by spoonfuls, onto your parchment paper covered baking sheet.
  • Brush the top of each scone with buttermilk.
  • Then sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top of each scone.
  • Bake your scones at 400° F for 12 to 15 minutes, or 'til they turn a nice golden brown. They're best served while warm with butter, apple butter, etc.


*I use this buttermilk mix to make buttermilk. But if you don't have either buttermilk or a mix, you can make your own with about 1 tablespoon of vinegar for every cup of milk you use. Just let the mixture sit for a few minutes before adding to your scone mixture.
Can I make these using gluten-free Bisquick?
Yes, you can. I actually make these with gluten-free Bisquick, and they turn out great. Just know that gluten-free ingredients have a tendency to change the texture in baked goods, though these scones turn out very moist and fluffy. One last note… Be sure to check all ingredient labels to make sure everything you're using is truly gluten-free.
