How are you? How was your weekend?
What do you all have planned for this week?
We took last week off for Spring Break and it was so nice.
We went to the movies and out for lunch.
We had a few bad days of weather,
so we stayed in and played games and watched movies.
We baked cookies for Spring/Easter.
We went to a Good Friday service.
We had a wonderful Easter lunch with friends and family!
Today, we had to take our puppy Daisy
in for her second round of
She's been doing really well and is all ready spoiled.
She gained 3 pounds since the last visit 3 weeks ago.
Here she is, being as sweet and still as can be. ;)
We have friends coming over for a visit tomorrow and then
the rest of the week will be busy too.
We have school to do and well that about it.
That's enough busy for me!
It's hard to get back into the swing of things
when we've taken time off.
But, we will get there! Ha!
Any who, thought I would share a quick recipe with you for
Cranberry Orange Scones.
These are very yummy and are perfect
with a cup of tea, coffee or milk!
Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by
my little corner of the world.
Cranberry Orange Scones
2 Cups Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Stick Butter, cubed
1/3 Cup Sour Cream
1/3 Cup Orange Juice
Zest of 1 orange
1/4 Cup frozen Cranberries, chopped
Preheat oven 400 degrees.
With a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour,
baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
With a pastry cutter or your fingers cut in the butter
with the flour mixture until it resembles crumbs.
Add in the zest of the orange and then make a well at the
center of the mixture and add the orange juice.
Then add the egg and the sour cream, mixing together with a fork.
Stir in the chopped cranberries until combined.
Place the dough out onto a floured surface and form a round ball.
Cut in half. Take one of the half pieces of dough,
form a ball and roll it into a 3/4-inch thickness.
Cut each ball of dough into eight triangular slices.
Place triangles on the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
Drizzle with a simple frosting if desired.
Makes 16 scones
