Simple Scones

Wow! It's been too long! I guess working nights & adding a Puggle to the family has distracted me for awhile.

These are one of my "go-to" breakfasts when we have guests. We almost always have everything we need in the house, and they are very simple to mix up. They were delicious on Easter morning served with fresh fruit, coffee & some lemon curd on the side. (And quick to make when you have a new puppy asking for some attention!)

SIMPLE SCONES (adapted from All Recipes)
Makes 12

1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup butter (room temp)
1 egg
1 cup raisins/craisins/chocolate chips (flavor of your choice)

In a small bowl, blend the sour cream and baking soda, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut in the butter. Stir the sour cream mixture and egg into the flour mixture until just moistened. Mix in the "flavor".

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead briefly. Roll or pat dough into a Two rounds, 3/4 - 1 inch thick. Cut each into 6 wedges, and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown on the bottom.
