The weekend has arrived, a quiet Friday morning, no rushing out the door for school. The perfect time to bake up some cranberry scones.
Lightly flour a cookie sheet. Mix together 3 cups of flour, 3 TBS sugar 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. Cut in 1 stick of unsalted butter until it resembles fine meal. Add 1/3 cup raisins or dried cranberries. Then mix in 1 large lightly beaten egg and 3/4 cup of buttermilk. Flour hands or surface and either roll and pat into shape (which I do) or pat dough 3/4 inch thick and use a cookie cutter. Brush tops with buttermilk and bake about 15 minutes or til golden.
Oldest son requested scrambled eggs to go along with his scones which he topped with butter.
Picky son number 2 doesn't like cranberries or scones so he wanted chapati with tea and milk.
Black coffee and a scone with honey for hubby.
And for me, scones topped with orange marmalade.
Blue skies welcomed June's arrival.
But those quickly turned to gray yesterday.
Now we are back to gray. Thankful for the weekend and time. Hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
