My family loves biscuits and scones, and spices are a favorite too! Once I learned that ginger was an anti inflammatory, I have started to incorporate it into just about everything I prepare, from meats to sweets. So the ginger sparked this yummy treat. We have it for breakfast, but it would be great anytime!
The name comes from the saying "What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice!" I have two wonderful girls that are just that!
I hope you enjoy, and don't worry about exact measurements with this one, cooking is supposed to be fun, not stressful.

How to Make Every Thing Nice Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425ᵒF
  2. Combine sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin spice in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Next, combine Bisquick®, ground ginger and allspice in a medium bowl. Scoop out the 3 tbls of Country Crock and, using a butter knife, cut into the Bisquick® mixture, stirring ever few seconds making sure it is combined yet crumbly.
  4. Add milk and stir with a spoon until you see there are no dry ingredients.
  5. With hands, scrape up and form into a ball, then kneed for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  6. Press out onto a clean, flat surface until you have a rectangular shape of roughly 8x5 inches. Down the long side, make 5 marks, about every 1 1/4 inches, then cut using a pizza cutter or knife. Then, cut down the center, halving the rectangle, cutting into 12 sections.
  7. At this point, it is a toss up in our home as to which is best, so depending on your taste, you decide which way to prepare.
  8. If you like a slight more of a crust on the out side, leave the 12 sections as they are and continue to the coating.
    If you prefer a softer center, not as much of a crust on the surface, PRESS each section into a ball with hands. Do not roll
  9. Prepare a shallow bowl of about 1/3 cup of milk or more.
    Take each section/ball, place into bowl of coating and cover completely.
    Remove from coating, dip into reserved milk, covering completely.
    Place back into the coating and cover completely again.
  10. Place either on a flat stone or a parchment lined cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  11. Cool for 2 to 3 minutes and serve warm.
    If baking on a stone, remove all 12 pieces, do not allow to cool on stone or sugar will harden and become difficult to remove. Remember, stones remain hotter for a longer time after removing from the oven.
  12. Softer center!
  13. More of a crust on the outside!
