2 tablespoons brown sugar

tips

  • bisquick mix is nothing more than flour, baking soda, and salt.  think of it as premeasured dry ingredients and your new best friend.
  • apple butter is apple sauce that is cooked for a long time.  long enough for a natural sugars to caramelize and turn to a deep brown color.  you can find it next to the jams and jellys.  if you can’t find it, try apple sauce.  or if you want a pumpkin gingerbread: pumpkin puree.
  • you could also make the same recipe into pancakes.
