As you may have guessed, that poor confused girl is me. And while I have come to appreciate the regular scone, and have even had some I greatly enjoy, I still had fantasies in my head of those never forgotten delicacies.
Oh the joy that flooded my heart the other day as I discovered that my dreams could be a reality once more! "British Scones" were what I was dreaming of. Not sure why it took me so long to figure this out. My friends that I learned all of my tea loving times from are very English.
I found a recipe that we are loving so I thought I would share it with you!
Here's how it goes~
Preheat oven to 425'
Mix~ 2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
5 Tbls. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
Blend in 1/2 cup butter with a fork, pastry blender or fingers.
Gently mix in 1 1/3 cup milk
Add as much flour as you need to get it to a workable consistency. ( Be careful to not overwork at this point or they will get tough!)
Place parchment paper on cookie sheet and place scones on it.
Bake for 10-12 minutes
This batch made 15 scones (Sisters Rachel and Anna are over!!!)
