Once the weather changes and it's dull and rainy I just want to hang out in the
kitchen. Do you?
First up are these tasty Raisin Scones!
These are the best tasting scones ever!!!
Just in case your mouth is watering and you would love to make these here is the recipe!
2 cups flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar Sift these ingredients together
4 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of shortening
1/4 cup of raisins ***you can substitute with currants***
in a separate bowl
beat 1 egg with 3/4 cup of milk
Add to dry mixture and fold till it is blended.
grease a cookie sheet and add the ball dough.
I pressed the dough into a round disc and patted it down to about 2 inches
scored the top into 8
the secret is not to over work your dough.
Bake in a preheated oven 425 degrees
for 10-14 minutes
I made these the other day to have with Cream of Cauliflower soup!
Nothing like fresh scones and home made soup!
Here's my recipe for cream of cauliflower soup! EASY!
Chop 2 cups of cauliflower
1 whole sweet onion diced
1 clove of garlic diced
2 tbsp of butter
2 potatoes peeled and chopped
In a large pot saute the above ingredients
then add 4 cups of water
bring to a boil then simmer for 1 hour with no lid
adding 2 more cups of water while its simmering to keep cauliflower submerged
Then with a hand blender cream up soup. I like to keep some of the cauliflower
chunky. But that's my preference.
You can make it creamier by adding a 1/2 of cream or milk.
Dish it up and add some grated cheese.
Cream of Cauliflower soup and fresh baked Scones ! How Delicious!
Hope you will give these a try!

Have a wonderful weekend!
