Back to the classics : Scones




It seems winter finally came out . This week end was very cold,  But notwithstanding the sky had a beautiful blue color . You know that I'm a morning person and love to gets up early. Particularly that morning made me want to eat something warm.  Bake some scones and spread it with butter or cream cheese and jelly, seemed to me a great idea . Are super quick to made and serves a dozen on a medium size.
As the most of you know, scones are tinny little rolls of Scottish origin. And they are very shared here. There's no bakery that doesn't have them and there are even industrialized (sucks). According legend the name comes from Stone of destiny the place where kings were crowned in Scotland.  


            On Sunday we had a family lunch while we ate appetizers, I thought the scones as sandwiches were fantastic, could fill it in many ways and with various ingredients. I think is what I do for my birthday. It's funny with so many innovations in culinary classic recipes are always the most practical, the easiest, and never fail.Hope you like the recipe as I liked..
Have a wonderful week.



Ingredients:

  • 250 g self raising flour
  • 2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 80 g butter

    Oi, Sylvia,

    As suas fotos me transportaram novamente para o mundo dos sonhos, você é também uma especialista neste tipo de fotografia! Quanto aos scones devem ser realmente muito bons (e tão apropriados para um breakfast de inverno!). Embora eu já tenha feito scones escoceses, não sabia a origem do nome, rsrs.
    Um beijo e bom fim de semana, querida!

    Scones are a must around here at least once a month. Using the for sandwiches is a great idea as well.
