  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Grease a cookie sheet.
  3. Combine the cream, Bisquick, and a little of the sugar. Stir lightly with a wooden spoon until ingredients are combined.
    OPTIONAL: add some currants, or orange zest, or whatever suits your fancy.

Not a Huge Fan

I am not a huge fan of the scone. I never understood the desire to eat something that is heavy and feels like lead in your stomach. I prefer a light, airy biscuit with butter that practically melts in your mouth.

Someone at work here said "It's like eating a cloud!" If you don't knead it and if you don't load it up with sweet sugary stuff, it comes out wonderfully light and fluffy.
