Cute and Scones

Those of you who know me, know that I don't usually do 'cute', but tomorrow we are going down to our daughters and will be seeing our granddaughters for the first time since Christmas.  I am so excited, I usually see them at least once a month, but you all know why it's been such a long time.  Lucie and Charlotte love making cards, so I've made this one as a sample for them, stamps the images ready and I'm actually going to let them have a go with my Copics....

Another brill recipe for you..

I made these at 8.00 this morning and as I put them on the plate to photo, Maurice decided he would have another, I made 9 and now there are only 6 left,  he's been sneaking in whilst I've been in my craft room.  Naughty boy....we're supposed to be watching what we eat.

Mabels Scones (it was a recipe from my mother-in-law)

8 oz S R flour
2 ½ oz sugar
3 oz marg
Pinch of salt
1 Egg
Little milk or water (I prefer water)

Rub in flour, salt and marg.
Add sugar and sultanas
Whisk eggs and water
Mix all ingredients together
Kneed gently
Form into 9/10 rounds and place on a greased baking sheet.  Don’t roll with a rolling pin, and don’t flatten too much, they are meant to be ‘rustic’.
Bake gas 6, 400f, 200c for 10/15 mins, until golden brown.

Whilst still warm, split and butter

They are good cold, best eaten a.s.a.p.  Ours never make it to the next day!

NB  SR flour can be substituted for wholemeal flour for those health conscious people.
