As I mentioned in my Welcome Home Basket post I made some yummy treats that are found in this area. We have a Washington State Fair here in the next town, there you can get these yummy scones. They are my favorite thing! So I had to make them for my Seattle themed basket and I doubled the batch so I could have extra's to give to the tutor and to the friend that helps me with the boys to get on or off the bus.
I found this yummy recipe for Puyallup Fair Scones on food.com they were easy to make and tasted like the real thing ... ok well it was very close!
- 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons shortening
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup raisins ( if omitting raisins, add another 2 Tbs of milk)
- Sift and measure the flour.
- Re-sift with other dry ingredients.
- Work shortening into dry ingredients with the fingers.
- Add rasinins to flour-fat mixture and mix thoroughly (you may omit raisins).
- Add milk to mixture. (If you are omitting the raisins, add another 2 Tablespoons of milk).
- Turn out on to a floured board and divide into two equal pieces.
- Roll or pat each into a round and to the thickness of biscuits (3/4 inch to a full inch).
- Cut into wedge shaped pieces like a pie and bake about 15 minutes at 450 degrees on an ungreased baking sheet.
ALEXIS NOTES: I used my cornbread silicone mold to make the scone shape :). I didn't use the raisins. I have not mastered jelly or jam making so I used a local farm brand we love to fill them.
