I decided that this morning would be a good time to have tea and scones and watch the Royal Wedding. It was actually my Sister's idea, but I thought it was a good one! I love royal weddings. They are so romantic. I was wondering if the 29th was significant for the royals for a date...because Charles & Diana got married on July 29 and her son got married on the 29th? I remember that because I too got married on the 29th'.....the first time around!
Anyway I thought you might like this scone recipe. I got it from the owners of the Pembrooke Inn in Door County, WI. Paul & Alice. I don't know if they still run the inn, and they never said I couldn't share the recipe, so here it is. (My Shug and I stayed there several years ago.)
You take 1 1/2 sticks of butter (use butter not margarine. You shouldn't be eating margarine anyway so if you are, stop)
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
I use my kitchen-aid, but be careful not to overmix.
Add 3 cups of flour
I add walnuts but the original recipe does not call for them.
1 cup of dried fruit
then add vanilla yogurt (the recipe calls for Danon. Mine was Danon, but it was Activia. It's all I had since I didn't plan ahead. It works)
when you roll it out. My edges were a little crumbly but it worked.
You can either cut them like this, or make round scones.
so I can either have one or two for breakfast or one for a snack. Sometimes I cut the original triangles into three or four smaller ones.
The recipe does not call for milk on top, but I usually will either brush milk, or egg white on top of the scones.
