Buttons and Bowknots

kathleen ralston


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.

2 cups bisquick
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup sugar


1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2Mix the Bisquick, 2 tbs sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, egg, and milk together. Beat for 20 strokes.
3Round up the dough and knead it 5 times on a lightly floured surface.
4Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a floured doughnut cutter.
5To make the bowknots, twist the rings to make a figure 8. The holes will be the buttons.
6Place the buttons and bowknots on an ungreased baking sheet.
7Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
8Immediately after baking, dip them in the melted butter and then in the sugar.
9Enjoy. They are best warm.
