Jeannie's Scone Recipe - My Friend stitched this for me to hang on my Kitchen wall.
I love it!
Here is how I make them:
Use pastry cutter to cut in REAL butter.
Will look like this when butter is cut in.
Add 1/2 cup of something to dry mix. Suggestions are 1. Chocolate Chunks (and 1/2 cup of Almonds), 2. dried Cranberries, 3. dried Currents if you can find the tiny ones (I have been searching but can't find them), 4. Any nuts you like
Mix the milk and egg and 1 tsp Almond extract together and pour into dry mixture.
Mix with a fork until just mixed together.
Then plop onto wax paper that has been lavishly sprinkled with flour and gently knead 12 times.
Pat dough to be about 1/2" high.
Cut with scone cutters. Scone cutters are cookie cutters that do not have a top on them.
Spray Pam on the Seasoned (ie - old) cookie sheet and put scones on the sheet about 1" apart. Sprinkle with sugar. Use regular white sugar and colored too, if you want. Almonds are optional.
Serve warm on a pretty plate and share with a good friend.
I will make you brooches and toys for your delight
Of bird song at morning and starshine at night.
I will make a palace fit for you and me,
Of green days in forests
And blue days at sea.
