Yes I have taken the plunge and delved even deeper into the addicting world of the internet. I now have my own pinterest account and it has proved to be dangerous. :) I have been having to limit my time on the computer even more. One idea popped up the other day to make a terrarium and I had to try it. Here are the results.

Scone Recipe for "Classic Cream Scones"

1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 cup currants (optional)

Step 1-Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit first.
Step 2- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Step 3- Cut the butter into 1/2 inch cubes and distribute them over the flour mixture.
Step 4- With a pastry blender or two knives used scissors fashion, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Step 5- In a large bowl, stir together the cream, egg, and vanilla.
Step 6- Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined.
step 7- Stir in the currants if you are using them.
step 8- With lightly floured hands, pat the dough into 1/2 inch thickness on a lightly floured cutting board or on the counter.
Step 9- Using a floured 2 1/2 inch diameter biscuit cutter or glass cut our rounds from the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
Step 10- Gather the scraps together and repeat until all the dough has been used.
Step 11- Lightly brush the scones with the egg mixture, if desired.
Step 12- Bake for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Step 13- Remove the baking sheet to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes. Using a spatula transfer scones to the wire rack to cool. Serve them warm or cool completely and store in an airtight container.
This recipe yields about 14 scones.
I had a craving for something sweet and English the other day and I made plain scones with blackberries on top. We have berries all year round because we freeze them so they are accessible all the time. Yum!
