I love to bake and I made scones last week. They were very good and my family enjoyed eating them. I hope you will enjoy them too. I didn't take pictures of the scones after I made them. I forgot, but next time I will take pictures of my next baking project.
Scones: 3 cups flour 2 tablespoons baking powder 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup butter 1/2 cup sultanas ( white raisins) or currants 1 egg 1/2 cup milk 1 egg(for glaze)
Scones: Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar.Rub in butter until mixture is fine. Beat egg with milk; stir in raisins. Add to flour mixture, mix to make a dough. Roll out dough 3/4-inch thick; cut rounds with a 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Brush rounds with beaten eggs; place on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, then 350 degrees for 5 more minutes. When ready to serve, cut in half and serve with Devonshire cream and your favorite jam or jelly.
Devonshire Cream: Beat cream cheese in a small mixer bowl unti light and fluffy. Beat in whipping cream, sugar and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour before serving with scones.
