Last week, I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Scones. I want to mention that they were well-received on Thanksgiving morning!:-) They did have to share the bread basket with these, though.
|I patted out the dough!|
|The dough was cut into eight wedges. Wait a minute! The Husband must have sneaked one off the rack!|
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoonbaking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1Tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup butter, cut up
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 cup dried cranberries
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
- Combine first six ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and dried cranberries, stirring just until moistened.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead five or six times. Pat into an 8-inch circle. Cut into eight wedges, and place one inch apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush with milk, and sprinkle with 1 Tablespoon sugar.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until scones are golden brown.
These will be repeated! Boy Munchkin really enjoyed them!:-)
One of the finest programs I have watched on TV in awhile was on our local PBS station last night. Celtic Woman presented an outstanding Christmas performance! I hope some of you were able to enjoy it as well.
