Scott's Firehouse Sunday Brunch Biscuits

There is something about light and buttery, citrusy and sweet that just shouts "Mother's Day".

If you are searching for a simple sweet treat for Mother's Day brunch or are leaving a subtle hint for your hubby or children to make for you...look no further.

My hubby has been making these forever and a day, but since I refused to buy Bisquick or eat anything that had it in it until here...I missed out BIG.TIME.

Now, Bisquick has taken up permanent residence in our kitchen and even has its very own labeled glass container!

So, if you are short on time, but want to have something fast, easy and YUMMY...this may be your ticket!

Scott's Firehouse Sunday Brunch Biscuits

Preheat oven to 450*

2 cups Bisquick

1/4 cup butter, softened

2/3 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar

Your favorite jam...{I used a peach mango orange with a lemon drizzle}


*Mix Bisquick and sugar.  Cut in butter until crumbly.

*Mix in milk until a soft dough forms.

*Drop by tablespoons onto Silpat or parchment paper.

*Make a well in each biscuit and fill with favorite jam.

*Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown @ 450*

*Drizzle with icing after they have stopped steaming.

*Makes about 8 biscuits.


2/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon orange juice, lemon juice or water

1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

*Mix all ingredients together until drizzly.

Serve warm and ENJOY!

This and That:
