Cranberry Orange Scones

Very yummy!

Cranberry Orange Scones

2 cups Bisquick
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 TB light margarine

1/3 c. Craisins
1 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup skim milk
 
Preheat oven to 400F.  Combine together Bisquick, sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Add butter; using fingertips, rub to form coarse meal.  In separate bowl, whisk milk and egg. Gradually add to flour mixture. Toss or knead to thoroughly moisten and form clumpy dough. (Add more milk if too dry.)  Mix in chips. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto nonstick or lightly greased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.  (I usually use aluminum foil instead.) Bake about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Can use butterscotch chips in place of craisins and orange extract, or Granny Smith Apples with cinnamon and nutmeg.
