I try to eat gluten free so I am constantly working on interesting recipes for the foods I crave. I miss scones. They are wonderful morning food when you are having guests or for breakfast in bed for Mom or Dad on their special day. The sweetness of the dried mango with the spiciness of the five spice is incredible. And, using gluten free Bisquick mix makes this recipe super easy.

Gluten Free Mango Five Spice Scones
1 cup Betty Crocker’s gluten free Bisquick mix
1.5 teaspoons five-spice powder
3 tablespoons sugar (I like coconut palm sugar), divided
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup dried mango, chopped
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
In a medium bowl, combine the gluten free Bisquick mix with the five-spice powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Add the orange juice and mix well. Gently stir in chopped mango and pecans. Place the dough on a parchment- lined baking sheet and form into a 6″ circle. With a large chef’s knife, cut the circle into 6 triangles like you would cut a pizza. Slightly separate the triangles from each other and sprinkle with extra 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with honey drizzled on top. Delicious!
