For all of you asking after the recipes for my mother's delicious scones, here it is!

Scones Lois Lee, Becky Norquist
6 c. flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 c. butter

Mix until crumbly with a pastry blender.

4 eggs
1 c. milk

Add to above mixture. Stir until blended. It will appear somewhat dry.

Add:1 1/2 -2 cups of fruit (I like dried fruit, especially cranberries)
1 c. white chocolate chips OR nuts
Mix well.

Put 1/4 cup scoops (for smaller scones) or 1/3 cup scoops (for larger) onto ungreased cookie trays. I use parchment paper.

Separate 1 or 2 eggs and whip up the whites using a fork until they are foamy. Brush the foamy egg white on the scones with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw, available at most grocery stores). Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown . The bottoms do get dark so you need to keep checking.

Cool. Wrap individually with a Cling or Saran Wrap type product soon after they are cool. They freeze well if put into freezer bags.

Time for Change

It was time to revamp my blog, and add some spice to my bloggin' life. I finally figured out how to add a photo after months of wondering. A splash of new color helps too.

That's all for now. This mama is TIR.ED. since it is 3Am and all. Nighty night world!
