Happy Presidents Day! The kids are off from school, and they love when I make homemade scones for breakfast. These are super easy, and the recipe is below. In honor of George Washington, try some dried cherries in place of the cranberries. Save the time and gas of flying to merry ole England and enjoy these with a cup of organic tea! Cheery-o!
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking POWDER
½ tsp baking SODA
¼ tsp salt
2 tablespoons sugar
½ cup butter, softened
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon milk to brush on top
1 tablespoon sugar for topping
Add to preference: Orange rind, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries
Combine first five ingredients.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.
Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.
Turn on lightly floured surface—knead 5-6 times.
Pat into an 8 inch circle—cut into desired number (like a pizza).
Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 425°F for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Don’t overbake.
Serve with fresh Devonshire cream and lemon curd.
