sweet scones

January 24, 2014


I think it is a natural instinct to have the urge to prepare food when the weather is cold.  With the temperature dipping into the single digits, and 10 inches of snow freshly fallen here in Connecticut, it is no wonder this instinct has kicked in!

The result of this urge today are some freshly baked scones.   A friend gave me the recipe for these particular scones, written on a brown paper bag, well over twenty years ago.  I call these ‘the sweet scones.’  So, for Friday field trip today. we are taking a trip back to twenty years ago as I share the recipe given to me by my friend Kathy.

With a sugar glaze, these scones are sweeter than the ones I typically make.  Other than adjusting the cooking time for my oven, I haven’t changed this recipe a bit over the years… and, the result is still as delicious as when I first tasted these scones at a regular get-together of friends.

They are wonderful to bake for some friends stopping by because they are very quick to prepare – give them a try!

Thanks so much for stopping by to share.  Have a fabulous weekend!

Remember to take pleasure in simple things,  Jackie
