How to bake the scone mix

  • 1 container scone mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place scone mix in large bowl.
  3. Beat egg in a medium bowl with a fork; reserve 1 Tbsp. of the beaten egg to brush on scones before baking. Add oil, milk and vanilla extract to remaining egg in bowl and beat with a fork until blended. Pour over scone mix and stir with spoon just until dry ingredients are moistened. Let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Scrape dough onto prepared cookie sheet and pat into a 6-inch round. Cut round into 6 wedges with a floured knife and brush with reserved beaten egg.
  5. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or transfer to wire rack to cool.
