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