|Bride's Bed 2013|
May 2013 be fertile ground for all our endeavors.
Here is a recipe I like to make on Imbolc mornings (in fact, they are in the oven this moment):
The Best Scones (from the book Candlemas by Amber K)
2 c flour
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 T sugar
1/4 c butter
3/4 c milk
1 beaten egg
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Mix in milk and eggs. On floured board, pat into a 1" thick circle and transfer to a baking sheet. (Or, if you're lazy like me, because it's too much of a hassle to drag out the bread board from the bottom of the cupboard, sprinkle flour on top of the dough and on your hands, scoop the dough out in one big mass and flip the floured side onto the baking sheet. Gently pat it into the circle with floured hands. There. Wasn't that easier? And you don't have to clean up the bread board or mess with trying to move a big circle of pliable dough.) Cut into 8 wedges but don't separate. Bake 25 minutes. Serve with butter, jam and clotted cream.
Later today? Candlemaking. Have a wonderful day!
