(by Shirley McNevich)
1/4 cup butter (softened)
2 TBSP white sugar
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup any flavor preserves or jelly
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 TBSP warm tap water
1/4 tsp. vanilla
In a bowl, use your hands or a spoon to mix butter, sugar and Bisquick until crumbly. Stir in the milk until dough forms. Beat with a spoon for at least 15 strokes. Drop by rounded TBSP of dough 2" apart on to a lightly greased cookie sheet. Make a shallow well in the center of each using the back of a spoon (dip spoon in flour if you have trouble with the spoon sticking). Fill each well with 1 tsp. of preserves or jelly. Bake at 450 degrees 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and while still warm, drizzle with glaze. To make glaze, put powdered sugar, warm tap water, and vanilla in a bowl and stir until smooth. Drizzle the glaze using a spoon on the top of each Danish.
