Scone Recipe To Enjoy With Your Afternoon Tea and Stolen Moment To Read

Well the mail man made my day by delivering the long awaited Books, Cooks and Crooks by Lucy Arlington to my door, though I am not yet through The Silence of the Library from Miranda James, I am looking forward to starting this one soon.  While I savor The Silence of the Library and my 4th scone with Double Clotted Cream (Devonshire Cream) and Raspberry Jam. I thought you may enjoy my scone recipe for yourself. 

Karen Mom of Three's Afternoon Scones
Pre heat your oven to 400F
2 cups of all purpose flour
4 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup of butter, margarine or lard
1/3 cup of white sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup of milk

In a mixing bowl combine your flour, sugar, baking powder and fat. Mix until they resemble bread crumbs. In a measuring cup place your egg and milk, use a fork to combine them and pour into the flour mix. fold into your flour mix until well combined. Then spoon drop (Or you can use a cookie scoop) onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 2 inches a part, place in oven and bake until golden brown.
Cool slightly and then sever warm with Doubled Clotted Cream and Raspberry Jam.

  1. I have never had a scone. I may have to try your recipe!

  2. I do love scones when having a high tea somewhere, and this sounds so easy! I just finished Books, Cooks and Crooks and it is very good. I hope you enjoy it too.

  3. Thank you ladies, you are welcome to come by for tea and scones anytime! I am looking forward to Books, Cooks and Crooks as well....just going to read Murder Sends a Post Card by Christy Fifield next....
