In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Treat.”
This is my hubby’s favourite treat…homemade scones. I just HAD to whip up a batch for the photo; it is amazing the lengths we go to for photo challenges, isn’t it!
They are easy to put together. You probably have all the ingredients on hand already; and they make the house smell wonderful. Here is the recipe for those interested. If you make them, let me know how they turn out for you.
Cream Scones with Currants
- 1-3/4 cups unbleached flour
- 2-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 1/2″ cubes & refrigerated
- 2 tsp finely grated orange zest
- 1/4 cup dried currants
- 1 large eggs
- 5 tbsp heavy cream
Note: Feel free to replace the currants with dried cranberries (as in the photo above), raisins, figs, whatever you fancy or have on hand. You could also use lemon zest in place of orange zest if you prefer.
Thank you for visiting, until next time….Connie 🙂
