Thoughts Before Baking:
I was going to a tea party and decided to bring some scones. The recipe in The Cat Who… Cookbook, that I got from my brother blog TheCatWhoWroteaBlog.wordpress.com sounded good but I didn’t have all the ingredients needed.
So I had to substitute. Let’s see how these turn out.
- 2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
- 1.5 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar
- 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/8 Teaspoon of Salt
- 1 Stick of Butter or Margarine, softened
- 1 Egg, Beaten
- 1/2 Cup of Crasins
- 1/4 Cup of Milk
- 3/4 Cup of Plain Yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon Cream or Milk
- 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
- Clotted Cream
- Cream Cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400°.
- Sift or mix the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt together.
- Cut in the butter or margarine until the mixture is about the size of small peas.
- Add the egg, the crasins, milk, and yogurt to make a soft dough.
- Turn out on floured surface and knead gently 4 or 5 times.
- Roll out to .5 inch thickness and cut into rounds 3 inches in diameter using a biscuit cutter or drinking glass.
- Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake on greased cookie sheet 10-12 mins or until lightly browned.
- Serve with butter, clotted cream, cream cheese and jam. Makes 12.
Thoughts After Baking:
These were pretty good!
They were a little plain, but I like them that way as they compliment the tea better.
