Scones, light, crumbly, flaky, buttery, and filled with goodies. For this recipe, I used chocolate-covered toffee chips and topped them off with a chocolate glaze and powdered sugar. To save time I used Bisquick baking mix.
Yield: 8 scones
2 cups Bisquick mix
2 tbsp. sugar
1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
1/2 cup butter
3 tbsp milk+ more if needed when mixing
flour- for dusting
1 tsp. almond extract
powdered sugar 1/2 cup
1 tbsp milk.
chocolate syrup 1 tsp.
Preheat the oven to 375*F
In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients together- Bisquick mix and sugar together.
Cut the cold butter into small dice (pea size) and add to the dry mix.
Rub the butter into the dry mix with your hands until it’s coated well in the mix. Add in the toffee chips and mix lightly.
In a small bowl add the egg and egg yolk with the almond extract and milk. Add to the dry mix and lightly stir with a fork until it starts to come together. Dust your table/surface with flour and scoop out the dough. Lightly kneed until a soft dough forms, similar to cookie dough.
Note-If it’s too crumbly when mixing add more milk or water. If it becomes too wet add a little flour
Once you have a ball of dough lightly press down and flatten it to a circle about an inch thick. You can flour a rolling pin to spread out the dough. Once you have about an 8-inch circle, use a knife or bench scraper and press into the dough about halfway but don’t cut all the way through. This gives the dough a chance to rise into the classic wedge shape. Divide into 8 pieces- divide it right down the middle, and halfway across, then diagonally like an x and you have 8 sections.
Next place on a lined baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat and bake for 12-15 minutes, just until slightly golden around the edges. Take out of the oven and cool on wire racks if you have them or a plate.
Next, make the icing-
In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, milk, and chocolate syrup. Mix with a fork, if it is too runny ass more powdered sugar.
When the scones are slightly cooled, cut out wedge slices, drizzle the scones with the icing, dust them with powdered sugar and enjoy.
