Mom's Scones...

So there's been a little sneaking going on around here lately... and cookies have been consumed quite often as a breakfast food. Now, I don't know your opinion on the matter, but in this house, it's a no-no. To soften the blow when I laid down the law, last night I made homemade scones. Boy, am I glad the subject came up... because I don't know 'bout the kids, but I sure am enjoying them! Here's my Mom's yummy recipe...

3c flour
1/2 c sugar
5 tsp baking powder
3/4 c butter/marg
1 egg in 1 c milk
extra flour

Mix dry ingredients and use pastry blender to cut in butter to fine pieces. Knead in the milk and egg, addding extra flour if too sticky. Pat into about 1/2" thickness and cut in circles. (I used a drinking glass) Dab tops with milk or egg to brown and bake at 425 for 15-18 minutes. Serve with jam and whipped cream... or in my case, light cool whip... enjoy!

Great looking scones - raisins added would be a plus.
