A Recipe For Raspberry Scones

Today is the first week back at school for my boys and I found myself for the first time in two weeks home alone with the cats and the sound of silence. I had a craving for raspberries and remembered I had some in the freezer so I threw together scones for a special back to school treat for myself and thought some of you may like the recipe too.

To Make Your Own You will need:
2 1/2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup of white sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1/4 plain yogurt
1/2 cup soften margarine, butter or lard

Method: In a large bowl place your flour, sugar, baking powder and mix with a spatula until combined add your margarine and mix until the consistency of bread crumbs. Add your egg, vanilla, yogurt and raspberries and fold your mixture together and shape into a ball. If your ball is too soft add 1 table spoon of water, if it is too dry add a bit more flour. Dough should be soft but hold its shape

Transfer to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Then press pat down slightly and cut triangle wedges from your scone ball.
bake at 400 until the edges are golden brown.
Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea in your favorite mug and top with a bit of clotted cream, cool whip ( I am lactose intolerant so I use this) or whipped cream. You could also ice your scones.
