I developed this recipe one evening while making "ordinary" biscuits. I had half a cup of potato flakes left in the box and I just added them to the dough. The biscuits came out of the oven as light and airy as pillows!
I jazz up biscuit mix with ranch salad dressing mix, then brush the golden bites with garlic butter after baking. I bake several dozen at once and store them in the freezer. The parsley-flecked biscuits go well with any entree.—Christi Gillentine, Tulsa, Oklahoma
This was one of my great-grandmother's favorite recipes. I'm 87, so you can bet this recipe has stood the test of time! I like to make these biscuits often during winter since they're a good complement to any hearty meal...very tasty when served hot with butter!
Popular served with tea in Victorian days, scones are making a big comeback. Apricots and nuts are stirred into the batter in this recipe I baked for the theme shower. Spread with Devonshire cream, they delighted the bride-to-be and guests.

“Blueberry scones offer a nice alternative to muffins in the morning,” writes Patricia Harmon from Baden, Pennsylvania. “And the bacon adds a savory twist to this recipe, making the scones a nice addition to a brunch…or any time at all with a cup of coffee.”
TIP: Sprinkle the tops of scones with sugar for a sweeter taste and a little sparkle!
Orange marmalade and fragrant basil give these delightful scones a slightly sweet, garden-fresh flavor. They’re tender and moist and perfect with morning or afternoon tea. —Hannah Wallace, Wenatchee, Washington
