I'm not a big purchaser of boxed cake mixes, but I do always have a big box of Bisquick on hand. I never use it. It's possible that the box I have now is the same box I bought 2 years ago. Anywho... it makes for good treats in a pinch.
Lemon Almond Tea Biscuits (cause really, they aren't sweet enough to be called cookies)
1 1/2 c. Bisquick baking mix
3/4 c. almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, juiced and zested
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add almonds to your chopper or food processor and pulverize them. Dump into a bowl with flour, sugar, lemon zest and juice. Beat eggs slightly, add to bowl and fold to combine.
Drop by large tablespoons (or use a cookie scoop) onto a greased baking sheet (I used my trusty Silpat, but parchment paper or cooking spray should do it). Bake for 8 minutes or until edges are golden. Transfer to a rack to cool.
Use a tea strainer. I'm telling you, those people are frickin' geniuses.
And there you go. Mixed, baked, cooled, decorated, and blogged in under an hour. Not bad. Sorry I didn't link a printable of this one, but I haven't got time to mess with Google Docs right now! I have to go pick up the kids before they start wandering around and get abducted or something. Ciao!
