Scone Recipe and random things…
A few asked if I could share the scone recipe from my last post– so here it is – a quick translation on the fly this morning! (it’s from a french pillsbury book from years ago) I hope you enjoy them!
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup margarine/butter
2/3 cup raisins
150 ml evaporated milk
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Add margaine/butter with fork until crumbly. Add raisins. In a bowl, mix milk & egg. Add to dry ingredients to moisten. Knead 5 times. Shape in a 8″ circle diameter and 1″ high. Put on non-greased cookie sheet. Cut in 8 pieces (without seperating). Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
Bake at 400oC for 15-20min.
note: We add cinnamon to ours 🙂 and typically we use whole wheat flour or a mix of white & whole wheat.
and a few random things…
An EMPTY bookshelf. I realize this is a very boring photograph — but the fact that this bookshelf (in my office) is FINALLY empty — is a HUGE accomplishement! It’s no longer empty — but it’s somewhat ORGANIZED right now!!
And finally – toddlers, painting. Isn’t it interesting to see how differently they paint? Alexandre is at the bottom — and he eventually soaked the paper so much in that spot that he was painting directly on the table!
