I should really be baking right now

I think I'm losing what little nablopomo mojo (say that 5 times fast) that I had to begin with. I'm reaching the end and I'm definitely starting to lose momentum. Plus, I should definitely be baking right now. I've got 2 pies, 2 kinds of cookies, and 1 nutso baking failure challenge to finish before the end of the day tomorrow. All those from-scratch things are difficult to make so I'm going to share something really easy  (and delicious of course).

I was searching for something I could make for breakfast one day and use the spartan ingredients I keep on hand. I found a recipe for super easy chocolate chip scones.

Chocolate Chip Scones (using Bisquick)
Adapted from Group Recipes

  • 2 c original Bisquick baking mix 
  • 3 tbsp sugar 
  • 1 c mini chocolate chips (I used regular sized chips since it was all I had)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/3 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream for brushing
  • 1 tbsp sugar for sprinkling
  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees F.
  • Line Cookie Sheet with Parchment paper (or spray with cooking spray)
  • Stir Bisquick mix, chocolate chips and 3 TBS sugar together, form a well in this mix.
  • Pour in the 1/3 c whipping cream, vanilla, and egg and stir until soft dough forms (if it seems a little dry add 1-2 TBS more of whipping cream).
  • Split the dough in half and form two circles about an inch to an inch and a half thick.
  • Brush top of the circles with extra 1TBS cream and sprinkle with sugar
  • Cut each circle into 8 wedges but do not separate
  • Bake about 12 min or till golden brown - test in the center.
  • When done, pull from oven, let rest a min or two, cut into prescored wedges and serve warm.


  1. Those were amazing. I remember watching several episodes of Top Gear while enjoying far too many scones! Thank you for posting the recipe!

  2. I lost steam near the end the month I did Nablopomo, but I am glad that I did it.

  3. Mmm that looks delicious! I hope your baking went well. I had a disasterous night last night. ;)


  4. With all the baking I did for Thanksgiving, I figured I was finished in the kitchen for at least a week. But having just stumbled onto this post,I think I'm going to have to try these out right away. Scones with chocolate chips...my two favorites! Yum!!!

  5. I didn't have the energy to even ATTEMPT NaBloPoMo. ICLW is quite enough energy for me, thank you very much. lol

    Those scones look delicious! mmm mmm good

    Happy ICLW!
