Bisquick-Based Buttons and Bows

This is a little bit of a twist (spice-wise) on a Betty Crocker classic my mom made for us growing up. I like mine with a little more flavor, so I've upped the ante on the spices and adding nutmeg for a little extra kick.

This recipe is a favorite for kids and grown-ups alike and very quick and easy to make.

Ingredients

2 c
bisquick
4 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/3 c
milk, fat free
1/4 c
melted margarine or butter
1/2 c
sugar
1/8 tsp
ground cardamom (optional)
2 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
nutmeg

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, the nutmeg, cinnamon, milk, and egg until soft dough forms

2Mix sugar and all remaining seasonings together and set aside.

3Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix. Roll dough into a ball; knead about 5 times. Press or roll dough until 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with doughnut cutter dipped in Bisquick mix.

4To make bow shapes, hold opposite sides of each ring of dough, then twist to make a figure 8. On ungreased cookie sheet, place bows and buttons (the dough from the center of each ring).

5Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately dip each bow and button into melted butter, then in 1/2 cup seasoned sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
