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!

Raisin Scones

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
1 egg
sugar

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.

Serve hot.
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…

a pile of fabric I got in the mail on Tuesday! Can’t wait to make dolls/toys with it🙂 I’m hoping to start with small Valentine dolls from the Living Crafts magazine (the premier issue)

A hat for Alexandre – but turns out i’m going to need more yarn to finish it. oops!

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!!

1/2 of the homemade spaghetti sauce that is now in the freezer for quick dinners or lazy dinners or comfort food!

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!
