Chocolate Scones?

Well, chocolate biscuits didn't sound right. Neither did chocolate shortcakes. But this is your basic shortcake recipe with a little cocoa powder and raisins added. Then I put a powdered sugar glaze on top.

Chocolate Scones

2 & 1/3 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Cover raisins with water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Drain and set raisins aside. In a large bowl use a whisk or fork mix Bisquick, milk, sugar, butter, cocoa powder and vanilla. Add raisins. The mixture will form a soft dough. Spoon onto cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Make your glaze while scones are baking. Spoon some of the sugar glaze on each scone when you remove them from the oven. Allow to cool on cookie sheet. Makes 6 scones.

Powdered Sugar Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix ingredients together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Spoon mixture onto scones to form a glaze.
