Maple Brown Sugar Scones

I bought some maple walnut scones at Wegman's the other day, and they were delicious. But I continue to crave them. Cole has 'Donuts With Dad' coming up at preschool, which is always a challenge. The dads show up at school and everyone eats Munchkins and makes little crafts, then they go to chapel together. It is not possible to make a good doughnut for Cole. I've tried. They tasted like french fries - I literally had to spit it out. So I decided to improvise on some Cole-friendly maple brown sugar scones. It had to be quick so I could do it in the morning, and since traditional butter-based scones won't work (Cole's vegan margarine tastes too strongly of soy), I relied on my old fall-back, Bisquick. And they were remarkably tasty, especially with black cherry jelly. For Donuts With Dad, I'll ice them with chocolate (Cole loved the test run this morning).

1 heaping cup Bisquick
scant 1/3 cup soy milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 T. brown sugar
2 t. ground flaxseed meal
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Using a wooden spoon, mix ingredients together until a dough forms. Knead dough for a few minutes until ingredients are evenly distributed and dough is springy to the touch. Allow dough to rest for a few minutes. Flatten out dough with hands to half-inch thickness and cut out scones with a small glass or round cookie cutter. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until golden on top. Makes 6 scones.
