summertime mornings: the recipe

Robin asked about the scones so I thought I'd share the recipe...

Cream Scones
2 1/2 cups flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
3Tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
5 Tbs butter
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream (half and half works fine)
1/2 to 1 cup mini-chocolate chips and/or dried berries (optional)

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter (I squish it all together with my hands till it's nice and crumbly). Add chocolate chips or fruit or both- as much or as little as you want. Stir in eggs and cream. Turn out dough and knead just enough to make a nice ball. You can plop the dough in balls on a cookie sheet or roll it out evenly, 1-inch thick, and cut into wedges. Makes 8 scones.
Bake at 400F for about 15 min (till tops begin to lightly brown)

Serve warm, with coffee of course. Enjoy!


  1. Yay, thanks!

    I think I have all the ingredients on hand, too. I might try to whip some up tonight.

  2. Oh drat, I don't have chocolate chips. Maybe I'll get to them this weekend then.

  3. Yum, I made these this morning. :)
