Buttons and Bowknots

This is from an old recipe book that has long ago fallen completely apart. I no longer remember which one. Even my copy needs to be redone it's so faded and old. Nice for breakfast or with coffee. Lighter and less fattening than doughnuts. The recipe says "Bisquick" but any biscuit mix is fine.
