Time for tea?

It’s Friday night and you’ve most likely had a busy week. Be sure to take time for yourself this weekend and enjoy a few moments to savour the good things in life. Why not nestle down in your favourite chair with a cup of tea and get lost in the pages of a novel. Or perhaps it’s time to reconnect with a few friends over a cup of tea. It’s a simple gathering to organize. These no-fail scones are easy to make and allow for multiple variations. Once you pop them out of the oven, all you need is some butter, jam, and that cup of tea. Enjoy!

Dorothy’s scones:

2 cups of flour                     1/3 cup white sugar

4 tsp. baking powder          1/2 tsp. salt

Mix dry ingredients together and then add 1/2 cup butter – use a pastry blender.

Add 1/2 cup raisins* &  mix in 3/4 cup milk. Roll out onto a floured surface to about 1″ thick. Use a circular cookie cutter or simply shape the scones with your hands. Dip the top of the scone in sugar. Baker at 400 for 12-15 minutes. Serve warm.

* You can substitute white chocolate chips and cranraisins. Or add lemon zest and blueberries (or raspberries) for a fruitier scone.
