In there I found a recipe for an easy MAKE-AHEAD baking mix. And from that mix you can make Flaky Italian (or normal) biscuits, and these Cinnamon-sugar scones. ~
(Taste of Home)
Mix 9 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup baking powder
1 Tab. salt
Cut in 2 cups of shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Store in airtight container in cool, dry place. (Makes about 12 cups.)
Mix 3 cups of Biscuit baking mix
1/4 cup sugar
Whisk together 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (I would think you could substitute sour cream, and add a tad more sugar)
1/3 cup milk
1 Tab. vanilla extract
Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in 1 cup cinnamon chips or semisweet choc. chips.
On lightly floured surface, knead dough gently 10 times. Pat into a 9" circle. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Cut into 8-12 wedges; Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425 for 13-16 mins. or until golden brown.
~I mixed up the baking mix the night before. Then...the next morning...I loved the part that the scones only took me about 5 mins. to mix up and then they were ready...
Mix 2 cups Biscuit baking mix and 1 teas. Italian seasoning.
Stir in 1/2 cup of half and half cream just until moistened. On lightly floured surface, knead dough gently 10 times. Roll out to 1/2" thickness; Cut with a 2 1/2" biscuit cutter. Place 2" apart on ungreased baking sheeting. Bake at 425 for 13-16 mins. or until Golden. Makes 8 biscuits.
And as Always...ENJOY!
