The Scone Recipe

For apple and cheddar cheese scone, I put less sugar in and grate the apple and cheese on a cheese grater.

Otherwise this is my famous scone recipe. !!! Enjoy

2 cups all purpose flour
� cup white sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
� tsp salt
� cup butter or margarine
� cup dried cranberries.

1 egg
2/3 cup milk

The secret to the best Scones ever, is the sifting of the flour !!!
I have also adapted this recipe by reducing the sugar, adding parmesan cheese and fresh garden chives.

Now:

In a small bowl, beat the egg until frothy, stir in milk � blend with a fork

In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add butter � with a fork cutting into the flour to resemble crumbs
Add cranberries, or other fresh or dried fruit.

Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, stir with a fork until it is all together, and if it is too dry add more milk.

I use a stone baking tray, (from Pampered Chef) or any good kitchen store.
Make @ 400F for 15 minutes. I make these into large round scones.
I never touch the batter.
Sprinkle with icing sugar. Serve Immediately.
