nah Gimpy , you have to make that ! LOL If you were going to fiddle around doing that you may as well make a pie. I would want quick and easy . A lady in the US sent me some Bisquick packages once. Some one said the biscuits were much the same as scones. Not at all .You can buy it from USA Foods but the smallest size they have is 40 oz [ $9.99 AU ] What I had was in single make pouches .

Its been years since I've made the hamburger version. Never saw the recipe for the chicken one. Used to make the umpossible cheeseburger pie for my kids all the time. I should make it again!

Henny Penny the american biscuits arent like scones, they are very different thats for sure. I guess they get likened as they look similar, I loved biscuits with chicken and gravy, mmmmm

Maybe I've never had a "real" scone...because they seem similar to biscuits to me, perhaps a bit denser.
Have a good recipe?

I am not a great scone fan or Damper type breads [ which are similar ] but one of my sewing group ladies makes them made with lemonade and they are lighter than ' " normal " ones . Like Gimpys Sprite ones I suppose.

PostSubject: Easiest cupcakes ever   Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:49 am

1 box yellow cake mix
1 can solid pack pumpkin

Mix together (no eggs, milk, etc.) Bake in cupcake tins or papers for @20min at 350*. Check with toothpick.
From beginning to end-less than 30 min. Can't beat that.


I made these and they work. I tried to mix with a spoon but would of took awhile to mix well. I used my mixer. Batter is thick. I used an ice cream scoop to put into muffin cups. Yellow cake does not have a lot of flavor to me. I thought these might be too pumpkiny but they are not. To me, they taste like yellow cake-except they are orange in color. Very Happy I did add a few choc chips, everything is better with choc chips IMHO. That helped but next time I think I will put a bit of pumpkin pie spice in it to give more flavor. I am sure if you frosted them, they would be great but I am trying to avoid that route. They came out very moist and light. I am also going to try it with a chocolate cake mix. Since the pumpkin didn't alter the taste of the yellow cake, I am thinking it wouldn't do anything to the chocolate either. ( I won't put spice in the chocolate one.)

This saves a lot of calories, no oil, no eggs. And what a great way to feed veggies to kids. They would never have a clue-just don't let them see you make them!

(My oldest DD got this off of facebook and shared with me.)

Yep, I've tried this before, except there are a few other variations you can share with your DD.

One is (and I plan on making this REAL soon) a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Mix together per instructions on box and cook at those directions, using only those two ingredients.

the other is a can of any diet pop and a box of ANY flavor cake mix. Again, mix per directions on box and bake at those directions, but with just those two ingredients. Very yummy! With this one there are infinite possibilities too since you can mix and match different flavors.

I'm guessing DD likes Hungry Girl? LOL, that's where mine came from!

Also, using Cool Whip free to frost is great and doesn't add too much to them either.

PostSubject: Andes Mint Brownies   Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:00 pm

Just took a pan of these out of the oven and thought I'd share since it's incredibly easy. Some of you may know about this already. My sweet DIL to be shared this with me.

Andes Mint Brownies

1 9 by 13 pan size brownie mix (or your fav recipe
Two small packages or one large bag of Andes Mints
(small chocolate mint after dinner candies...like they give at Olive Garden)

Make and bake brownies as directed. Remove wrappers from mints. Reserve 5-6 and chop for topping. Leave oven on when removing brownies.
Layer mints on top of hot brownies. Put back in hot oven for 30 seconds and remove. Gently spread melting mints across brownies like frosting. Top with chopped bits.

The spread mints harden like a frosting and stay that way without refrigeration. Easy peasy and looks fancy! YUM!!!
