I have been flooded with requests for recipes that use cake mixes or baking mixes. For a lot of people scratch baking can be unfamiliar territory. I can go either way. I have a lot of scratch recipes and a ton of baking mix recipes. I personally don't have a major problem using mixes. I use the Bisquick Heart smart baking mix, which has the American Heart Association check mark.
I have adapted this recipe from the Bisquick cookbook for Raisin Scone Sticks. I make them with any number of ingredients, including my boys favorite, chocolate chips. I have also used cranberries with orange zest, white chocolate walnut, apricot walnut, the list is endless. These would also be a great addition to your traditional cookie platter this holiday season.
2 1/2 c. Bisquick
1/2 c. skim milk
1/4 c. plain yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. mix ins, chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, etc.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all ingredients until a soft dough forms. Dust your work surface with more Bisquick. Scoop dough on to work surface and add a touch more Bisquick to the top. Pat into a 9 inch round and using a pizza cutter, cut into 8 wedges. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, brush with egg wash (egg substitute with a scant amount of water). Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
