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.

Thanks! I have been meaning to ask if your Momma would give this up! Much thanks! :)

What is a pastry blender? Will a regular blender suffice?

These Scones rock! My mom and I made them this last weekend and added pecans to half the batch. We had just gotten some Pumpkin butter from an apple orchard...boy did they hit the spot.

Thanks for sharing.
