~Fun Food Friday...Strawberry Scones~

Go here...For news on new baby Dickinson. =)
~I LOVE being comfy (in my nice house shoes that my friend Mrs. Erma from Canada sent to me when I had Baby Mary=)...having something hot to drink, and eating a fun pastry! (As if you hadn't picked that up by now. =) ~
~So, today I'm posting a fun recipe for you to enjoy with something hot to drink.  I posted this recipe about 4 years ago, but am posting it again for my new readers.  It's YUMMY!~
My sister Laura sent this to me when she was a missionary to Romania.  I'm sending it basically as she sent it to me. =)
~Strawberry Scones~

2 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
2 teas Baking Powder
¼ teas salt
1/3 c. butter (Marg)
1 egg, beaten
1 teas. Vanilla
¼ c. whipping cream (since I didn’t have this I used Sour Cream)
¼ c. buttermilk (I soured my own milk, since I didn’t have B.milk)
1c. hulled and sliced strawberries (Laura used thoroughly drained canned ones… since she didn’t have fresh. I used fresh, so I think that either canned or fresh would work out great!) Or you could try diced canned peaches too.

Glaze: Brush on top of scones just before baking:
1 beaten egg mixed with 1T. whipping cream (again I used sour cream)
and then sprinkle sugar on top of each scone.

Combine dry ingredients and cut in butter until coarse crumbs. Put a well in center and set aside.
Whisk egg, vanilla, cream and buttermilk together, Stir into dry mix just till moistened. (b/c of our flour I had to had about ¾ c. soured milk). Fold in strawberries. Knead on floured board just until smooth about 10 seconds. With hands pat into a 7” circle and 1” thick. Slice into 8-10 slices and line on lightly greased cookie sheet. (Since I have 2 smaller children, I sliced mine into smaller pieces: 16 pie shaped pieces.) Brush with glaze mixture and sprinkle with sugar and Bake at 375o @ 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack. ENJOY!

BEST IF SERVED WARM! THEY WERE NOT HALF AS GOOD THE NEXT DAY, AS THEY WERE WHEN THEY WERE FRESH OUT OF THE OVEN! =)

Love ya,

Laura
~When I posted this recipe...in 2007...this is what our precious Kimberly, Sarah, and little NOAH looked like.  This was before our precious Elijah and Mary joined our family. =)~

Sounds wonderful! My how the years have changed those three that now have turned into five! But one thing is the same, they are still as precious as can be, and I am not even a prejudiced Gram. ;-) This recipe has been over the miles and is still going. Love, Moma
