This is worth it just for “MY Eye! My Only Eye!”. Cracks me up.
Of course, Skittles has nothing to do with Scones apart from the fact that they both start with S.
Big debate in my house: Sc-OWN or s-CON.
I’m a scown person myself.
I once had a friend in Texas, who was from England, who made scones for every gathering. I still think of her when I whip up a batch.
You’ll love these light, sweet scones. So good layered with cream and jam and accompanied by a steaming cup of tea.
Sweet White Scones
7 cups/900g/2 lb flour
pinch of salt
1/4 cup/50g/2oz granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
175g/6oz butter, cubed
1 egg, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 475℉/250℃
2. Sift all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Rub in the butter (I did this in the food processor).
3. Beat eggs with the milk and add all at once to the dry ingredients. Mix to a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface.
5. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in the hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown on top.
6. Cool scones on a wire rack. Serve warm split in half and slathered with jam and butter and/or clotted or whipped cream.
Makes 18 to 20 scones
New favorite of mine.
Two Wounded Birds.
Cool, catchy, and fun. Feels like the sun shining on one’s face.
