YUMMY SCONES

This whips up real quick when you have company and need something moist and hot and delicious to serve!

Breakfast scones
2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
2 TBSP sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 Cup Butter
2 eggs beaten
3/4 Cup whipping cream (or buttermilk, or milk)
(Sometimes during the fall I will add just a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg to this mixture!)
400* oven

In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender or a fork, (the only power tools needed.) blend butter into mixture till it looks like dry crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add beaten egg and milk. Stir just until moistened.
If you mix scones or biscuits too much they become tough!
Now you can pat them out like biscuites and use a biscuit cutter, or if you are stretched for time you can take a large spoonful and drop them on a cookie sheet. About 12 on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-14 minutes till lightly brown on top. Serve warm
with honey, jam or apple butter. Yum!
This and a cup of coffee and I am a happy woman!
Blessings,
Debbie

I've never had one yet in my life! These look good and I'm always looking for good easy things to whip up for guests or on Saturdays.

Hi Debbie:
I've never had a scone..are they like a bisquit? (that doesn't look like I spelled it right, sorry).
It sounds like you are not only a good cook, but a great baker too.

Debbie, thanks for stopping by my lil' ol' blog! Can I tell you that those "fake" cinna-minis totally had me cracking up? They turned out so cute, and looked very real. But....here in lies my problem. My hubby and 4 kids wouldn't bat an eye before trying to eat those. I guess that's why you had me laughing...funny mental picture!

Thanks ~ Amanda
