My Daughter's Scones~

I only had to work for a short while today.It was absolutely fantastically beautiful today..
When I came home..we had lunch..then went X-Country skiing out the back yard.It's not a beach day..but as the sun sparkles on the ocean..at least a few days in winter..the sun sparkles on the snow and makes it bearable~
When I came in from skiing..my daughter's blueberry scone recipe was calling to me~

Cupcakes are cute and sweet..muffins are grand ..but scones.. are my favorite.

I had made some honey butter yesterday..and played with my idea of never getting to The French Laundry restaurant:(

So I was ready for her scone recipe..

They are sooo good..I did halve the recipe..again just J and I..and they turned out very well..
Resting..before they go in my little basket..

Just soo good!

Thank goodness I did do a bit of exercise today..

Cold white paradise day~

So much milder than our frigid last week..

Even some natural decorations on the trees..

The recipe for the scones is very easy..
Just halve the recipe if you are 2:)

From Cook's.com


2 c. flour
2 tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. milk
2/3 c. blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix well.
In a small bowl, stir together butter, eggs and milk. Pour into flour mixture, and mix until ingredients bind together. Stir in blueberries.

Turn dough out on a floured surface. Pat out to a 9 inch circle and cut into 8 wedges. Transfer with a spatula to a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Makes 8.

There are MANY scone recipes.. This is the one I made today because she liked it..and I do too.
She took Noah out on the sleigh today.. it was so sunny he needs sunglasses:)He's 6 months old and anxious for Spring I bet!

My notes..I baked mine a little longer~

    The scones look wonderful and honey butter would be a great addition.

    Monique, the pictures of your spruces would make a lovely holiday card or calendar.

  9. My dough was a little sticky DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?

  10. Are you sure about the 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking Powder? I made these and had to throw the whole batch out. this was the only thing I could see that could have been the problem.
