Scones... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Basic ingredients:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk

Fun add-ins:
~ 1 cup fruit (chopped if it's not berries) - I've had success with raspberries (pink scones), blackberries (blue scones), mango - and of course the standards - raisins, cranberries, choco chips, etc.

goat cheese/cranberry... I think what I did was 1/2 small package of herbed goat cheese (crumbled) and a generous handful of cranberries

Instructions:
  • heat oven to 425 F
  • cut the dry ingredients and butter together until you get a dry oatmeal texture
  • mix in wet stuff and fun add-ins to make a soft dough
  • bloop 4 gobs (technical chef language) onto a greased cookie sheet
  • pastry brush some milk on the tops of the gobs, sprinkle with suagr (white, brown, doesn't matter- and yes, on the goat cheese ones too)
  • bake for 15 to 20 min or so - until browned on the top

Great directions Nat. I thoroughly enjoyed the "bloop 4 gobs" part. Maybe I'll have to make them for my next gourmet breakfast.
